These interactive blending and segmenting mats are sure to get your students excited about decoding and smashing words! These are a blast! Simply print, cut and laminate the decoding mats. Grab some play dough and you’re all set! Your students will love these!
**These mats are designed to help your students with decoding. Students will smash the play dough balls for each sound as they are decoding the word on the mat. After they decode each sound, they will slide their finger along the arrow below the boxes and say the word. **
These are great to use during small group teaching, intervention groups, tutoring groups, and word work stations. These could even be sent home for homework.
