Using the Letter Mats
For this activity, students will roll a die and find the picture that corresponds to the number they rolled.
They will then say the word out loud, isolate the beginning sound for the word and determine which letter makes that sound. Then they will feed that letter to the flower.
Finally, they will write the letter at the bottom of the mat. Then clear the mat and roll again.
There are 5 mats included, each mat has 6 letters of the alphabet covered on it. So students can practice certain letters or parts of the alphabet, or they can work through all the mats.
For students ready for a challenge, have them write the letter more than once, feed both the lowercase and uppercase versions of the letter or write both the uppercase and lowercase versions of the letter. There are many ways you can change it up to meet the needs of your students.
You could even provide students with a recording sheet and have them write each word on that after they build it on the mat.
Learning Letters and Sounds
There are a variety of ways that these flower mats can be differentiated to teach beginning sounds and meet the needs of your students.
Since there are five different mats, you can start by having your students complete only one mat. As their skills progress, they can work their way up to completing 2 mats and then more!
Another way to use this activity is to give students play dough and they can use stamps to stamp the letter in the dough. Or they can build the letter with play dough,
An added sensory option is always a great way to engage reluctant learners. Plus, adding in fine motor work for all your little learners is great for their hand strength.
