This is a double set of picture and word cards for your students to practice reading words with beginning blends.
There are 32 words included in this pack, and all of the words are included in each set of cards. The purple-bordered cards feature each word and its matching picture on separate cards. The pink-bordered cards feature the word and picture on the same card. I use them to differentiate the activities for my different reading groups. The pack also includes a sorting mat for sorting r-blends, s-blends, and l-blends, and recording sheets for both the matching and sorting activities.
To play a matching game, print a single set of purple cards or a double set of pink cards. Lay cards out facedown in rows. Players take turns flipping 2 cards and reading them. If the cards match, the player keeps the pair. If not, both cards are flipped back and the turn is over. When all pairs have been found, the player with the most matches wins.
To use as a sort, print either purple picture cards, purple word cards, or pink word & picture cards. Print and laminate sorting mat. Students sort words/pictures by whether they begin with an r-blend, s-blend, or l-blend.
