Reinforce the blending of CVC spelling patterns with this Valentine's Day sweet station. The sweet cupcake cards with nonsense words will help keep the students interested as they practice their fluency of blending consonant and short vowel sounds in these words. There is a sorting mat for the students to use when partnering with another student. The mat is to sort the words that were read as whole-blended words or just sound-by-sound. This is a great blending station for improving phonetic fluency skills.
