Stretch The Word:
Great for reading centres, small group and individual activities.
Students choose a word to sound out (there is a beginner’s word mat included).
Place the letters for the word underneath the snake, sound out each letter and say the word.
There are some alphabet tiles included, but you could also use scrabble letter tiles etc.
Students could then try putting the word into a sentence.
This has been very helpful teaching my students the CAFE emergent reading goals.
