In this activity students will sort marshmallows by their beginning, ending or vowel sounds. There are 4 mugs with an animal picture on each mug and words describing if they are targeting beginning, ending or vowel sounds. Students will then match 4 marshmallows for each mug . This activity also includes a recording sheet for beginning, ending or vowel sounds for accountability. This center is easily differentiated. You can choose which skill is the most appropriate for your students or if they should try to sort all three ways.
