Using the Milk and Cookie cards from the Rhyming activity, ask students to use Oreo Letters to segment words into sounds. The Cookie cards contain CVC words and the Milk cards contain CCVC words. (Note: I typically read student a word from the card, and then give them 4-6 letters they need to use to break the word down into sounds. Once completed, I show them the card and they check their work).
