This pack includes most of the blends and digraphs!
These word building mats are editable so that you can type in any words you want and they will be added to the cards you will use on the mat. The font even automatically resizes, so that you can use words of any length and they will still fit!
IMPORTANT NOTE: This digital file MUST be opened in ADOBE ACROBAT READER after you download it. You can get Adobe Reader for free here, if you don’t already have it. You will not be able to edit the file properly without Adobe Reader.
Children will place the the word cards in the “Read it” section of the mat and they will read the word out loud. Then they will write the word on the handwriting lines. Finally, they will build the word with the circles.
There are caterpillar pieces for every letter of the alphabet, so you can build simple CVC words and sight words.
