The ability to quickly and accurately name letter sounds is an important predictor of reading success. Letter sound fluency is a skill that I practice all year long with my kindergarten students. These seasonally-themed letter sound fluency mats are a great resource to help students practice this skill in the form of a game! These mats can be independently and successfully completed during your classroom center rotations, or they can be incorporated into your guided reading groups as an intervention resource.
What you will receive: This product contains a total of 24 letter sound fluency mats. There are 3 mats to coordinate with each of the following holidays or seasonal themes: Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and Spring. Each mat contains 6 rows of letters as well as a seasonally-themed graphic.
How to Play: Laminate the mats and provide students with a game die. Students will roll the die. They will find the same die on their mat, and “read” the row by providing the letter sound for each letter. For students who are still struggling with letter identification, they could instead name each letter in the row before moving on to sounds.
I hope this helps your students master their letter sounds and develop fluency!
