This is a great activity because it can work on so many things! I love to use these flashcards when we are working on Phoneme Segmentation. It really helps reinforce that some letters work together to make one sound! They see 5 letters in short, but only hear 3 sounds, and they can visually see that with the flashcards. We like to call those letters that work together "Best-Friends."
I also use these flashcards when I introduce a new letter/sound. I show the kids the big stack at the beginning of the year, and I tell them that they will learn all of these letters and sounds. "Wow, really Mrs. Rucker???" Yep! They love it when the stack gets smaller and smaller and smaller because we are putting them in our "Yep, I Know That" pile! :0)
How do you work on building new words or sound segmenting in your classroom? What tips or tricks can you share with us to put in our teaching backpack? :0)
These flashcards are available on TpT in the "Star" theme. We are all Kindergarten Stars in my classroom! If you would like to see them in another theme for your classroom, please let me know!
