Kindergarten Spelling

Word mats are a helpful tool in Kindergarten. They are perfect for literacy centers and early finishers. They can also be offered to parents whose children are struggling. As winter is approaching, we have created the mats with a winter theme.

THE BENEFITS OF READ, BUILD, WRITE MATS

We all know that hands on learning is one of the most effective ways to teach this age group. Read, Build, and Write mats provide that kind of learning. Children read the word first. Then they must pick out each letter and arrange them in the correct order to build the word. This means they are learning to spell the word without realizing it. This learning is consolidated by writing the word.

I love the flexibility of these mats. You can use them to help kids learn sight words, unit vocabulary and spelling words. You could even use them to help children learn their names.

A variety of alphabet manipulatives help keep things fresh. This maintains the children’s interest. Manipulatives can include

EDITABLE CARDS ALLOW FOR FLEXIBILITY

All the mats are fully editable, so you can use any words you wish. The font has been set to automatically resize to fit the box, so you don’t have to worry about word length. This means that you can easily use the mats according to the needs of your students.

Are they learning the first sight words? Do they need some challenging spelling words? Teaching some specific vocabulary to go with a unit them? These mats will work for you! Just type the words you want to use into the table and the words will automatically fill in the mats.

NOTE: If you want your mats to look the same as ours, you will need to download the free font KG Primary Penship

EXTENDING THE ACTIVITY

While memorizing sight words is useful, it is also vital that our students use them in context. The easiest way to do this is use them in their writing. Extend this activity by inviting students to write a sentence that uses their sight word. We have included a writing sheet that you can use.
