This is a practice for kids who are identifying sounds that they hear in words and will work for Immersion or bilingual students. Using pictures they will match up the sounds that they hear in the words to the syllables they see in the sort. The words are written underneath the pictures so that there is no confusion.
On the second page they can circle the syllables that they see inside the words, and later write the words to the best of their ability, or they can search for the words hidden in a list of words for each syllable above the pictures. That makes it self-correcting. Kids love this part because they can try on their own and then check to see if they got it right when they are done.
I generally use this as a teacher-directed activity with moments of independent work between sections. I have used this page with both kindergarten and first grade. Kids enjoy the pictures, the cutting and pasting, the coloring, and circling syllables within words, and then writing a sound-spelling for the mystery words (which have the actual spelling hidden somewhere on the page --fun!) I have my kids think of the syllables for that word and look up top to find the correct spelling for each word after they try it themselves. I think you will find this an easy page to use.
This set includes ma, me, mi, mo, mu for /Mm/, and same for /Pp/, /Ss/, /Tt/, /Ll/, /Nn/, /Ff/, /Dd/, /Rr/, /Jj/, /Bb/, /Cc/, and /Gg/.
