Materials Needed for Popcorn Initial Sound Match-Up:
Getting Popcorn Initial Sound Match-Up Ready:
Print the match-ups (Color or Black & White), laminate and cut using a paper trimmer. Gather all of the pieces and place in a plastic container. I love using plastic pencil cases to store centers like these. It keeps everything in one place and does not take up a ton of space.
This obviously doesn’t take a ton of time to put together and makes a wonderful activity to help your kids have fun and learn at the same time.
Doing Popcorn Initial Sound Match-Up
Students will start the activity by choosing a bucket with a letter on it . My daughter chose the popcorn bucket with the letter “Tt”.
Students will then sort through all of the popped popcorn with pictures looking for the ones that start with the letter “Tt”.
Each popcorn bucket has six pieces of popped popcorn with a visual. Once the popcorn bucket has has six pieces of popped popcorn representing the corresponding letter, they can move on to a new letter and start again.
Another way this could be completed, is to have all of the popcorn buckets laid out on a table or even the floor. Students will then sort through all of the popped popcorn pieces and place each one at the correct popcorn bucket.
If you have younger (or struggling) students that would be overwhelmed by the amount of puzzle pieces in this activity, scale it back. Provide them with only a few of the letters. Once they master those, you can slowly add in more.
