This set is perfect for February, but can carry over through spring. Students are becoming more independent with segmenting and blending CVC words. Students match the objects to the words, then practice what they have learned by recording the words, think of another same family word, then illustrate the other word. This helps with identifying the same middle and ending sound that makes words part of the -at, an, ig, ug, or -et word families. The cards are coded with familiar February themed icons to make sorting easier.
The cards can also serve as assessment manipulatives for rhyming words.
Students can also arrange the cards upside down on the table for a game of memory.
