My students love putting puzzles together, and it's even more fun creating different puzzles featuring different phonemes. This tests whether your students know where a specific sound is positioned in a word, which is ideal for students with initial, medial, and final phoneme goals!
This product features 4 puzzle pieces per sound in each position of the word.
80 puzzles containing phonemes:
♦ initial, medial, and final /p/, /b/, /m/, /n/
♦ initial /h/ and /w/
♦ initial, medial, and final /t/, /d/, /k/, /g/, /f/, /v/, /l/, “j”, /s/, /z/, “sh”, “th”, “ch”
♦ initial pre-vocalic /r/
♦ vocalic r: -er, -ar, -or, -air, -ire, -ear
♦ r-blends, l-blends, and s-blends
♦ Print and laminate all materials.
♦ Note: To save paper while printing or to make the puzzles smaller, print a couple of puzzles on one page (2-4 puzzles per page).
♦ Cut apart the puzzle pieces.
♦ Mix the pieces together (use multiple puzzles for added difficulty - the student must sort the sounds into the appropriate puzzles).
♦ Have the student put the puzzle pieces together using appropriate speech sounds.
Another idea: Put magnets on the back of the pictures and put the puzzles together on a cookie sheet.
