I’m back today with another F R E E B I E for you all!
These are so much fun and add way more excitement to sound segmentation + they are no prep!
These work great for RTI, tutoring, word word stations, group practice, or partner games. Students decode a word by using the sound circles on the mat. Students will “push” a manipulative (candy, bells, pom poms) into the sound circle for each sound. Another option is for students to “smash” a manipulative (play dough or marshmallows) for each sound they hear in a given word. I’m tellin’ ya – these are loads of fun…especially the marshmallows.
Simply print and laminate!
You can download these sound mats for F R E E here.
Students can practice math fact fluency, sight words, word recognition, letter sounds, or any other concept that you type onto the editable cards. Once a student completes the card, they add a manipulative to the game mat. The goal is to fill the mat.
Students could also use these to practice reading sight words with a partner. Students fill the Christmas tree with two different colored ornaments [M&Ms] after they read a word correctly. The partner that has the most ornaments on the tree – wins!
These are loads of fun, too! You can read more about these Christmas Game Mats here.
