In this printable pack, children will be introduced to the Short E sound. This pack includes the following CVC word sounds:
There are three activities included on each of the playdough mats. They also come in both color and black and white for printing.
Read the word ~ Here the word is written in solid print. This is great for helping children learn to read and say the word.
Write the word ~ In this area of the playdough mat, children can use a lead pencil, crayon, marker or a dry erase marker (if laminated) to practice writing the word.
Build the word ~This is where the children can use playdough to build the word. They could also use things like buttons or pom poms to build the word as well. If the mats have been laminated, they could practice tracing the word with a dry erase marker.
Here are two of our favorite playdough recipes that the kids can help you make: Homemade Playdough with Essential Oilsand Super smooth, soft playdough.
