Use these engaging matching activities to support your students with multiple phonics skills! These "match it up" games are thematic and span the entire school year. Use them in centers for independent practice or in your small group for re-teaching or guided instruction.
These activities each have a skill that they focus on. They were designed to progress through the school year as kindergarten students learn new skills. You can put these activities in centers for students to use during whichever month or theme you are in. Since many skills are self-checking, students will enjoy being able to complete them on their own!
