There are so many uses for this activity! My original intention was to have it for helping students see and hear the 1st and last sound in a word. As I got going, it turned into something much more!! This activity can be used for that, as well as practicing spelling, phoneme segmentation, and letter recognition!
I have included 4 segmenting mats and one page of letter mats (Used to practice spelling! Any words can be used with this, not just the ones provided here). Use them as you would like and how you see fit! As we know, every student we see is different! =)
If there is something else that you would like to see in this activity, please let me know!
* 4 Sound Mats (GREEN = 2 sounds, ORANGE = 3 sounds, BLUE = 4 sounds, PINK = 5 sounds)
*1 page (2 mats) of spelling mats
*Letter tiles (4 of each letter, and blank tiles in case one goes missing!)
*10 pages of words(There are words for all 4 mats. They are divided by the numbers of sounds, same as the mats! GREEN = 2 ORANGE = 3 BLUE= 4 PINK = 5)
* 2 sets of 30 picture cards (One set includes the word and one set does not)
