This big bundle of is a simple, no prep center that you can use through the entire school year!
There are 52 different phonics mats included, along with recording pages for students to record the words they clip!
Just toss the mats and some clothing clips (or large paper clips) in a bin and you're ready to go. Switch out the mats every week to reinforce your phonics instruction.
How to Prep: Just print and laminate the phonics mats. You will need a bin and some clips (4 clips per mat). You may also wish to photocopy some recording pages, or laminated them to use with a dry erase marker.
How to Play: Students study the picture or word in the very center of the mat. They follow the directions on the mat, clipping each word or picture that matches the center. For example, if the picture is a cat, they clip all the words that spell "cat" on the board, reinforcing both spelling and visual discrimination. In other examples, the middle spot may say "CH", and students clip all the pictures that contain the digraph CH. Students quickly catch on and complete the clipping independently. To add a writing component, students write the words they clip and write sentences.
Bonus Materials: A second complete set of mats are included that have each picture labeled. This gives added support to younger students and also provides clarity when students may not be sure about the word being represented by a picture.
This collection focuses on the following phonics skills:
- CVC short vowels (each vowel has it's own set of pictures)
- Long Vowel Pairs (2 similar vowel pairs in each set, such as ee and ea)
- CVCe words
- Rhyming Word Families
