Each student will need a sorting mat for this activity. Four different sorting mats are included. Students will draw a card from the pile, and they will say the word on the card. They will determine if the word has the final /s/ or /z/ sound before adding it to their sorting mat. There are 54 cards with final /s/ or /z/ words in this packet. Also, students can create sentences using the targeted words. The green cards are special cards, and students should follow the instructions on the card. The student with the most cards at the end of play is the winner.
This activity is helpful for students working on /s/ and /z/sounds. Also, it will be helpful for students with hearing impairments because they may struggle to produce these final sounds.
