This activity includes 64 mailboxes and 96 rhyming Valentine's Day cards with 64 different rhyming families. Rhyming helps beginning readers with phonemic awareness, which is the knowledge that phonemes are the smallest units of sounds that make up words. This leads to reading and writing success. This activity makes a great Literacy Workstation or Reading Center and can be used in a small guided reading group. Students can work together in a small cooperative learning group or independently. A Perfect addition to a Valentine's Day or February thematic unit. Brought to you by Mrs. Horvath's Kinder.
