***Looking for an easy, meaningful activity to help your students review their letter sounds, blending, short vowels, and consonant blends? The Winter Sound Garden will have your students picking out sounds and blending in a Winter Wonderland! Laminate and cut out the different endings and blends. Photocopy the recording page and the Sound Garden12 times for each activity. Add the cover page and photocopy into a booklet so that the Sound Garden is opposite the recording page. Choose an ending and demonstrate how to select a sound from the Sound Garden, test it out with the ending to see if it will make a word, and record it. Color each sound in the Sound Garden as it is tested. Students can choose one of their words to illustrate in the space provided. Encourage your students to add any other words they can think of with their chosen consonant blend or ending. Students may also add some nonsense words to their list to fill up all 8 spaces.
