Are you looking for a way to teach your kids how to build and blend words? These tap mats are a wonderful tool when it comes to teaching your Littles how to read and write!
This bundle includes two introductory vowel slides to teach students that all words have a vowel! Once you have established that rule- you are ready to build CVC words with your tap mats! This bundle includes four short /a/ slides, three short /i/ slides, three short /u/ slides, three short /e/ slides, and three short /o/ slides. At the end of the bundle, there are five "I spy" rhyme slides.
How To Use:
Each student is given a tap mat (laminated or in a dry erase pouch) to tap the sounds of the word. I project this on my interactive board and we use our interactive pen (students use dry erase marker on their individual tap mats) to write the CVC words once we have blended all of the sounds together to create the word. As I said before, we tap each sound three times before we blend it together by using our finger to move across the arrow. Once we have done that, we write the sounds we heard.
