We have been working hard on stretching our sounds and blending our CVC words. I had an idea to create a 3D snake to help the kids blend. So I scoured the internet looking for a stuffed snake that I could easily make. And I found it ... a snake made out of a tie!
Here is my version!! The kids really enjoy blending words with it. They simply place the magnetic letters on the snake (they stick to the metal washers on the inside of the snake!) Then the students move their finger along the snake as they stretch the sounds of each letter. What fun!
I posted the directions in my TpT store. Head over there and print them up!
