Baby it’s cold outside! Warm up to middle sounds with these fun mitten themed middle sound activities. Includes printables and multiple ways to play the Mitten Matching game (in color and black and white).
Your students will be able to distinguish all the short vowel sounds with a fill in the missing letter page and mitten coloring page. Then, extend their learning with the Mitten Match game: just sort the mitten picture cards onto the mitten mat with the correct middle sound. You can also use the Pocket Chart Mittens and smaller Student Mittens for a whole group matching game. Just place the pocket chart mittens on your pocket chart, then give each student a mitten picture card. Your students can sort each picture with the correct middle sound.
Other Game Options:
Print Student Mittens for each student. Call out CVC words. Students can hold up the mitten with the middle sound they hear.
Give each student a Mitten Match Picture. Then, have them find friends with the same middle sounds as them.
Play Four Corners using the Pocket Chart Mittens and Mitten Match Pictures. Place Pocket Chart Mittens around the room. Give students Mitten Pictures. Students will stand in front of the mitten with their middle sound.
