You know when you get carried away blog hopping and then don't remember where you found something? That's what happened with this one. So . . . it's not my idea, but I loved it . . .
This is a reading activity made out of paint chips. Genius! Put the ending sound on the card with the cut-out and then the different starting sounds down the strip. Move the card down the strip and sound out the different words.
We've had a lot of fun with this one in our house.
