Each student will have a reading mat and a baggie filled with corresponding items (button, band-aid, toothpick, etc.). Great for a reading center!
They will practice looking at the first letter (and the rest of the word) as they try to figure out which word matches their item.
Included in this download:
- 6 different mats with common item words
- 2 blank mats that can be customized with your own unique items
- Picture cards for each item in case you don’t have the item on hand
- Parent letter explaining the assignment if you want to send a sheet home for homework
- Teacher directions
