An independent literacy center activity:
Students match 38 pictures on "eyes" to their beginning letter blend on 19 "smiley faces". (Can be made self-correcting.)
Place picture cards face up. Students choose a picture card and try to match it to the smiley face with the correct beginning blend.
This could also be used as a teacher guided center. I plan on using it one week in a teacher directed small group and then put it in the independent centers the next week. Meg Cooksey
