Valentine’s Day Consonant Blends Activity

Reading centers have always been my favorite part of the day. In our centers, my students use these letter magnets to practice spelling sight words, identifying phonemes, or recognizing a specific sound in a word.

Pair the letter magnets with these consonant blends magnet mats and they are perfect for students working on blends in Kindergarten or 1st grade! They are a great option for not only reading centers, but morning work tubs, early finisher activities, or sub day plans!

To prepare this magnet mat activity, you will need:

Students use letter magnets to fill in the missing consonant blend on each word mat.

How to Play

To begin, I give each of the students their own baking sheet. This serves as their workspace and allows them to stick the magnets on and move them around as needed. It is also helpful that they all have their own space while they are working on this activity.

I put the pile of mats face down in the middle.

Taking turns, the students select a mat and place it on their baking sheet. They look at the picture, sound out the beginning blend, and find the corresponding letters to place in the boxes.

The students keep playing until all the mats have been completed!

I give each student their own baking sheet which allows them to stick the letter magnets on their consonant blend activity mats.

If you want to change it up, these magnet mats can also be used as a dry erase spelling activity! You will just need to be sure to laminate them first.

Students take a mat, look at the picture, and sound out the word. They identify the beginning blend and write it in the boxes provided using a dry erase marker.

This is an easy-prep activity your kids will love and it can be used for years to come!
