This is a great tool for phonemic awareness! There is three parts to this mat. Pull the sounds (I have students place a cube in the starting circle and pull it into the boxes as they sound out a word), say the word (place finger on starting dot and slide finger along the line as they say the word), and write the word (two different kinds of handwriting lines)!
I use this daily for guided reading and RTI, super easy to practice phonemic awareness! Laminate or put in page protectors to use with dry erase markers.
