Teaching Ending Sounds to 1st graders

I'm so excited to share this teaching activity with all of you!

As parents we are always looking for ways to help our children learn. When our kids are young, before they even start school, we are reading to them, teaching them sounds, words, and much, much more. We are our children's first teachers. And I think we are our children's most important teacher because we are the ones that give them the foundation they need to succeed in school.

It is with that role in mind that I created "Rhyming Flowers", a simple activity that gets kids excited about learning new words, understanding how putting together letters makes words, and distinguishing sounds.

As preschoolers, kindergarteners, and even first graders, kids are beginning to understand the relationship between sounds and letters. It's a magical time of discovery. Kids get so pumped up when they realize how many words they can make with one simple word ending. "Rhyming Flowers" is here to help with this wonderful discovery. This teaching tool will make learning rhyming words and sounds really interesting for the kids.

"Rhyming Flowers" is basically a rhyming game. What makes this learning product so different and so worthwhile is that it is FUN! I've used it with many young children and the response is unbelievable. I've had students lay on the carpet and play with these rhyming flowers for hours on end.



"Word Family Rhyming Flowers" comes in a set of 10 flowers. Each set has a flower center which is the ending sound and several petals which are the beginning sounds. The set also comes with instructions and extra game ideas. I've also color coordinated the flower petals and centers to make it easier for the parent/teacher.

The set is downloadable and I recommend laminating it which will make it usable for a very long time.

You can buy the set here for only $10. That's just $1 per flower. This small fee gets you endless teaching opportunities as well as infinite fun for your kids and students.

And to kick off the new school year, I'm giving away 2 sets to 2 Adventures of a Homeschool Mom readers (1 set per winner).

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

It's really easy to enter....just leave a comment below telling me why you would like this activity and how your child or student would benefit from it. That's it!

I'll announce the winners on Tuesday 9/10 on the blog and on Facebook, so be sure to "like" Adventures of a Homeschool Mom as well.

Happy Homeschooling Adventures!!

  12. This would be fantastic! I very much want to homeschool my daughter, and I think things like this would make it a blast for her, partly because she loves flowers, and partly because the best way to learn something is by making it an enjoyable (and memorable!) experience.
