PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for a new way for the new year for your students to practice identifying the beginning, middle and/or ending sounds in words?
Would you like a pack that practices both short and long vowel ID (a new requirement for Common Core!)?
Want a center that is fun and easy to use for both you and your students and can be used in multiple ways to maximize student achievement?
Here it is!

This Pack Includes:
*30 New Year Themed Party Hat Center Cards
(4 cards for each short vowel type & 2 of each long vowel)

*B&W printable to use as assessment of mastery (proof of assessment for progress monitoring, RTI, parent reporting, etc!)
~can be programmed to review beginning, middle or ending sound
(or make 3 copies & use same sheet for 3 consecutive days to practice identifying all 3 parts!)

*Use as a ‘workmat’ and use counters/chips to mark answer, laminate and allow students to use dry erase markers to circle answers and/or
cut the hats out and use clothespins to mark the answers!

*Cut, laminate, hole punch (on top of hat) & attach each with a binder clip.
Make several sets-You have an awesome ‘ready-to-go’ center, quick word work activity to use at guided reading group, small group work for small intervals of time, etc!

*Can be used for beginning, middle or ending sound identification which allows for the center to be used multiple times and modified for what each individual student is working on or needs review with!

*Although it says ‘New Years’ can be used throughout the year (party hat)!
If you would like the 'winter' version, click here:
Snowflake Beginning, Middle & Ending Sound Center Cards

*Aligns with Kindergarten Common Core Standards: RF.K.2 & RF.K.3

On  July 4, 2013Jennifer Drake answered:
So glad! I'm confused on the printing part- it should print exactly as you see it on the screen- that's how I used it in my K class and the kids do fine with that size- plus it is the perfect size for the clothespins! Email me at jennrussell1@msn.com if you still have questions! Enjoy!
