This product was created with small group instruction in mind. It can be used as a Spelling Center or a Reading Center too. This activity can be used to teach the following Phonological Awareness skills: letter recognition, letter sounds, spelling, beginning sounds, ending sounds, vowel sounds, decoding, blending, word families, or rhyming words. This activity can be used for direct instruction in ELA in a small group or even as a center. The cute raincloud and umbrella mats are bright and colorful keeping students engaged for the entire lesson. The umbrella boxes make it easier for students to break apart the sounds in words. This activity is perfect in regular education or a special education classroom. My Life Skills students love to practice their spelling words each week using this activity! Included is a page of directions on how to use this activity for a number of different skills.
