I made these flash cards last school year to help her with her (mainly) ending sounds. We flip through them and she says them. I want her to be able to know what the letters say without having to stop and sound them out.
Today I decided to put contact paper on them and let her make words. She would tell me the sound and then I would tell her what word to turn it into.
She thought it was lots of fun! For the word pants I had her turn (an) into ant. Then I asked her to turn (ant) into pants. Her face lit up every time she changed the word.
The last thing she did was make up her own word. I love to make learning fun!
