Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? In my house, the tree is up every single year on November 1st and when I was teaching, it was set up the day kids returned from Thanksgiving break. This is my favorite season, no doubt. These Christmas Tree Blend Printable Puzzles will have your students in the Christmas spirit and eager to learn. They will be the perfect addition to your literacy centers this holiday season.
Christmas Tree Blend Printable Puzzles comes with twenty different puzzles. There are three pages each of the following blends: Ll blends, Rr blends, and Ss Blends. This gives you a ton of options to use throughout the holiday season for helping your students learn the sounds.
It is recommended that you print the puzzles on cardstock and laminate so you can truly make this an interactive center and also so it can last for years to come. There are many easy to use laminators if you are working in a home classroom. You can use laminating pouches or a laminating machine to keep these protected for years of use.
Using Christmas Tree Blend Printable Puzzles
Students will first pick a printable puzzles piece that has the blend on it. Students will point to it and say the blend.
Next, students will search through the remaining puzzle pieces and find the picture that matches the blend. As students complete a puzzle, they can set it aside as they search for more.
If your students are struggling with all twenty puzzles at once, give them only the Rr blends, or you can give them one or two puzzles from each of the blends. As they master those, then you can add more in. You want your students to be successful so adapt the activity to meet their needs.
