I am passionate about finding ways to keep your whole class engaged as you use your smartboard or projector. This resource is sure to be a HIT with your students! The "whack-a-mole" theme is fun and motivating. Sound effects and animations will keep your kiddos focused and engaged. Make simple mallets for your class using pool noodles and pencils and let them whack mats to choose their answers. For even more kinesthetic fun, make large mats for students to stomp on.
This set includes a PowerPoint with 24 slides showing CVCe word pictures. Click on a hole, and a mole will pop up with the missing letter. When you click the vowel sound, both the long vowel and the silent e pop up together to offer a visual to help reinforce the two vowels working together. The long vowel mole has his mouth open shouting his sound. The silent e mole has a zipper over his mouth to help remind students that he makes no sound. Students will engage with the PowerPoint by whacking the letters on their own mats. There are printable mats and directions included. I am currently working on a variety of other skills that will be added to growing bundles.
