Match the cones (letters/beginning sounds) to their scoops (images). Each cone has 3 scoops/images that go with that beginning sound.
The vowels have two short-vowel scoops and one long-vowel scoop. Each long-vowel scoop is the strawberry flavor.
X does have three scoops: x-ray, x-ray fish, and xylophone. I included xylophone even though its beginning sound doesn't sound like /x/; it sounds more like /z/. I included it, though, with your choice to disregard it or not.
Differentiate this center by choosing specific beginning sounds. It's best to not overwhelm the students with all the pieces at once.
Laminate these to keep them in great shape!
