My students are BANANAS about this activity!
Use letter tiles (from games similar to Bananagrams or Scrabble, which are not included in this download) OR use the included paper letter tiles.
All pages are also included in black and white! Check out the preview for a free sample :)
This download includes banana letter mats, each mat containing 8 words, for the following sounds:
Initial R (2 mats)
Medial R (1 mat)
Final R (2 mats)
Initial R-Blends (1 mat)
Initial S (1 mat)
Initial S-Blends (2 mats)
Final S (1 mat)
Initial L (1 mat)
Initial L-Blends (2 mats)
Final L (1 mat)
Initial K (1 mat)
Initial G (1 mat)
Initial F (1 mat)
Final F (1 mat)
Initial V (1 mat)
Final V (1 mat)
Initial SH (1 mat)
Final SH (1 mat)
TH (1 mat - 1/2 initial words, 1/2 final words)
*A blank mat is also included!
How to Use:
• Scatter letter tiles face up on table
• Give each student a laminated mat featuring their target sound
• Students race to find letters in the pile to complete all of the words on their mat
• Once the student has found all the tiles for a word, they practice that word 5-10 times (or use the word in a sentence - whatever the SLP instructs them to do)
• When they have practiced all of the word on their mat, they can put the tiles back on the table, shuffle them around, and try again! Students can try to find all of their needed tiles faster the second time!

**If using Bananagrams tiles, I recommend buying the BIG bag so you have enough tiles for a group of several students to easily find all of the letters they need.
