Arrange the slats to make words. Cut along the lines as needed. You can start with separating the onset (first letter) and the rime (everything after first sound). Practice letting them hear the word parts and blend them back together orally. Then separate the CVC words to make new words. There are two dogs on each background and collar color to make 4-5 words. A list of possible words is provided in the file. I am going to practice orally first, then do whole group in a pocket chart, then let it progress to a literacy station.
