A word building mat in a skateboard theme and a set of vowel, consonant, blend, and digraph cards.
Use this teaching resource in the classroom when learning how to build and segment words using knowledge of phonemes, blends, and digraphs. This transportation themed word building activity is ideal to use with students who are consolidating their knowledge and understanding of phonics.
Print on cardstock and cut out the consonant, vowel, digraph, and blend cards. These cards can be used as a reading center activity or work great as a guided reading activity with your small groups when working on different phonic skills.
This resource can be used in a variety of ways, such as:
- give students a word and have them apply their knowledge of phonics to build words on the template.
- you build a word on the template and have the student use their knowledge of phonics to decode the word.
- Put a set of picture cards in a center and have students choose a picture card. Then students apply their knowledge of phonics to build the word on the template.
