I am so excited about the teacher manipulatives that come along with this series. The teacher manipulatives add a hands-on element to the lesson that really gets the kiddos interested. Furthermore the teacher manipulatives add a visual to help support a wide range of learners.
I made these because I wanted my worksheets to be more of a lesson than practice. With the integration of teacher manipulatives and space for students to label images I can teach so many skills at once; segmenting, blending, word family identification, encoding, sorting, and rhyming just to start. The possibilities are endless!
Look for Short e, Short i, Short 0, and Short u coming soon!
