For Fun - Pair with some holiday "pointers" for students to use while pointing to the correct response. Target $1 has many fun options like the Reindeer Batons & Pencil Pointers all for $1!
Possible Ways to Use the Mats:
Place a magnetic letter, letter flashcard, or write/say a letter and ask students find it’s upper/case lower match (vice versa)
Provide a sound and have students find the matching picture or provide students with a word and have them find another picture with the same initial sound
Word Segmenting/Syllables w/ Vocab & Comprehension Practice:
Orally break the word into syllable chunks and have students blend the word & find the picture or Give students clues until students find the match
Ex: 2 Syllable Word, a food, & sometimes has sprinkles - ”What is it?” A DONUT
Flash student vocabulary words of numbers and have them find the number match on the smash page. (Can also ask them to find a number that is greater/less)
Dice/10 Frame Numbers:
Orally give students numbers and have them locate the match on the smash mat. Show the student number format or written format and match. Or, give the students a compose/decompose problem and find the answer match!
