My intention to make the monthly syllable cards were to have my students practice blending. So far, it's been the best center for my class! Not only do they practice segmenting and blending but they are learning new words!!! They contain vocabulary words that I don't have to teach. Also, the collaborative group work between my students is so neat to hear and see. They help each other by looking in the sea of syllables to make that word!
I did buy pizza baking sheets at Walmart for ¢92 and magnetic tape instead of the velcro and it was easier to manage. Check out the pictures for yourself!
