In small reading groups we use letter tiles or "chips" to push into each box or "circle" to sound out our words. I use the words Stretch it Out Like Bubble Gum as a fun way to stretch our sounds.
Print and Laminate these mats to use during small group.
I have included color and black and white pages for easy printing.
The color pages have bubble gum circles that show the consonants in blue bubble gum and the vowels in red.
There are bubble gum circles for CVC, CVCE, CCVC, and CVCC words.
