So Many of you LOVED our Phonemic Awareness Sound Segmenting /Blending Manipulative Freebie that we thought you would love to have some activity Mats that followed the same three color concept. Use these with your students to give them both a visual and a manipulative modality to learn sound positions.
Green Circle = Beginning Sound
Yellow Circle = Middle(Medial) Sound
Red Circle = Ending Sound
We want to make sure that we focused on and had isolated skill practice with the CCSS for Reading Foundational Skills : Sounds Segmentation that we are required to teach and have the students master. Each of these sound segmenting/blending mats can be used in small group These Activity Mats are aligned with the Common Core State Standards:
CCSS RF.K.2d-isolate and pronounce the initial, medial, and final sounds. (phonemes) in three-phoneme words (consonant-vowel-consonant or cvc words) .
We did include mats that had CVCs ending with l, r, and x. We felt, why not let them try! We made these word mats to make Independent instruction, as literacy centers, RtI remedial help or as a worksheet for homework practice. Speech teachers at our school have given us their stamp of approval!
How ever you decide to use these mats in your classroom, we hope that you find them a useful tool in your Teaching Tool Box. If you have any questions, please contact us at:
These Activity Mats are a wonderful follow up activity to our Phonemic Awareness Sound Segmenting/blending Pocket Chart Center also.
