What's stretchier and more fun than bubble gum, right?!
My students are using their stretching skills to focus on every letter's sound.

In this activity they are using blank gumball word mats to stretch the words, listening for each letter's sound. I dictate a word {from the word list} and they show what sound they heard first, in the middle, and at the end of the word.

We're starting with CVC words. I also have mats with 4 gumball spaces {as seen below}, so we can work on CCVC and CVCC words. Word Lists are included for these kinds of words too!
