This is a great starter or warm-up activity during guided reading groups and it's easily differentiated to meet the needs of all students!
The strips are three to a page but if they seem to big, simply choose "print 2 to a page" under the print option on your computer.
Suggested use: Make a set for each student by laminating the strips and putting them on a binder ring. I start by putting on the blends we are working on and add to it as needed. I remove strips once my students have mastered them.
The students each go through the pictures on their strips and say the beginning sound for each picture. For example, for the bl strip, they would say: “/bl/, /bl/, blanket; /bl/, /bl/, blender,” etc.
My kinders also like to tap out the syllables as they say the picture names. If the tapping on the table is distracting, I have them tap the syllables on their legs or tummies (or really any body part will work!! :)
Students can also work on their strips while the I'm doing a running record or as an early finisher task.
