These 2 centers are perfect to have students sort silent initial sounds /n/ and /r/ and to associate vocabulary words from Journeys Unit 2; Lesson 8 with related words and phrases. I created these centers because I felt the Grab-and-Go! Center by Journeys Common Core for Grade 3 were boring!!!!! I recommend you create 2 sets in case you have the children work in groups of 2 at a center.
-Cut out the cards titled set 1 and set 2. Place the cards in a separate a Ziploc bag.
-Have students follow the direction on the Initial Silent Sound Mat. Make sure both partners check to make sure the words were placed in the correct box. Then, allow them to check the answer key.
-Copy the Initial Silent Sound Mat on cardstock and laminate.
-Cut out vocabulary words. Copy the words on cardstock, and place inside a Ziploc bag. Make 2 sets.
-Have students follow the direction on the sheet titled, Word Association.
