Print as many mats as you need for the number of students in your class – the same goes for the sight word printable snowman cards. You can add LIMITLESS amount of sight words to your file. Just make a copy of the same PowerPoint slide you’re working on and edit the words on the slide. Be sure to save the file as a PDF so that printing is seamless. I find that printing straight from PPT makes the images blurry.
Sight Word Build a Snowman MatsI LOVE using learning mats – they are so much fun for kids and best of all, they are quick to setup and play! Use these mats to help kids learn to read and identify their sight words. We know that with learning, repetition and practice is key. Kids will be motivated to ‘build their snowmen’ as they read and match sight words. You can work on ANY sight word list you want since this file is totally editable! After you’ve printed and laminated the cards and the mats, cut the snowman cards up.
Place the sight word cards along with the mat on the table. Have the kids start by choosing a snowman sight word card, read the sight word on it and then find the matching snowman sight word card to build their snowman. They can build up to three snowman on the one mat. You can of course, print this mat on a larger A3 sized poster paper to have them build even more at once.
