This activity was designed to help young students learn letter sounds and letter recognition, as well as improve listening skills.
This 62 page set includes the entire alphabet. (For each vowel there is one set for the long sound and one for the short sound.) An instruction sheet with a list of words for teachers to read to their students, and a sheet with the letter mats for the students to use is provided for each letter. (Each sheet includes two letter mats so you will only need to print one page for every two students.)
Instructions: Place a marker inside each letter box. Tell the students to listen as you say one word at a time. If the word begins with the sound you are focusing on then the students remove one of the markers (if you are using cereal then the students can eat them.) Continue until all markers have been removed. Option: Have the students ADD a marker each time they hear the sound rather than remove one.
This is also a great activity to send home with students to reinforce letter sounds and recognition.
