Superior Segmenting Snowman Practice with Snowballs

  1. Use cotton balls to segment each letter sound.
  2. Then write the letters that are known to add some phonics to the lesson.
The writing of the letters always takes a back seat to the stretching of the words.

How do you help?

Students that have a difficult time recalling the formation of the letters need a little extra help. Have a sample copy that you model how to write the letter that stands for the sound. Then the students can see a sample as they write.

Segmenting sounds through the use of these cute snowflake sound boxes and snowballs strengthens phonological awareness.

Phonological awareness refers to the ability to recognize and manipulate individual sounds in spoken language. By segmenting words into sounds, kindergarten kiddos (or all beginning readers) gain a deeper understanding of the sound structure of words.

The heightened awareness of individual sounds enables kiddos to identify patterns, rhyme, and phonetic relationships, which are crucial for reading and spelling success.
