With this set of puzzle cards, students can match pictures with their beginning letter sounds. It includes consonants, both short and long vowels, as well as 34 blends and digraphs. These would be perfect to use during small group reading instruction, as center activities, or as homework. Two direction pages (for the alphabet and blends/digraph sets) are also included if you choose to send the puzzles home for additional practice.
