Build phonemic awareness skills and letter/sound recognition with these ready-to-go sound sorting object kits. The wide variety of irresistible objects will actively engage young students in discriminating among similar sounds, and in connecting those sounds to the letters that represent them. Target sounds are easy to isolate because most of the words contain only one syllable.
The included Sound Sorting guidebook shows you how to set up, manage, and assess your sound sorting activities. The comprehensive guide outlines a developmental sequence of sorting activities, from easier rhyming and beginning sound contrasts to more difficult vowel and consonant digraph discriminations.
Kits contain everything you need to set up a multitude of activities:
Focus on 12 vowel sounds in the middle of words. What has the same vowel sound as bat? Pan or pin? Contrast long and short vowels. Includes 67 objects; 4 sorting mats; cards with a target sound and illustration for that sound; and the Sound Sorting Guidebook.
