Initial, ending, and middle sound identification mats contained in this material are designed to fit the letters of Montessori small movable alphabet. This is a terrific exercise for children who are confident with their letter sounds but are not quite ready to build full CVC words. This is a classic pink series prereading activity.
This will not only help the children to reinforce their knowledge of sounds but also to remember the location of letters in the alphabets box. When first introduced to MA it may take children quite some time to be able to find the sound they need. With this type of work, the process of "building words" goes much faster as they only need to find one sound to complete the word.
This material is very easy to prepare, all you have to do is print the pages on cardstock. If you intend to use it in the classroom with many children, I would recommend laminating. There are 12 pages containing a total of 35 CVC words--15 initial sounds, 15 ending sounds and 5 middle sounds. File also contains 3 pages of control sheets.
