If You Take A Mouse To School: Phonological Awareness Book Companion

I absolutely love using books to teach phonological awareness skills to my kindergarten and first graders!  I love the idea of using words right from the text to play with.  Pretty soon, I am going to be starting up with my kindergarten intervention groups again.  I will work with 5-6 students specifically on phonological awareness skills.  So, I thought that this would be a great time to start getting some more of my phonological awareness activities together.  Here is my latest phonological awareness book companion!  It is a companion to the book If You Take A Mouse To School by Laura Numeroff.

There are five different activities in this packet, and also a new feature of my book companions which is four worksheets that do not require any prep on your part except for printing.

How Many Syllables?- Students count the number of syllables, and use Do-A-Dot markers to complete the activity. (4 worksheets)



Blending Syllables- Students listen to two syllables, and state the word that they hear.  (18 cards and game board)


Recognizing Rhyme- Students listen to two words, and then state if the two words rhyme. (24 cards and 2 mats) 

Generating Rhyme- Students are given a word, and asked to state a rhyming word.  (27 cards and roll it rhyme it, keep it game board)

Listening for Sounds- Students listen to a word, and state either the beinning, middle, or ending sound of each word.  (54 cards and game board from Blending Syllables activity)

The next part of this packet is something that I am pretty excited about.  I am going back and including these in all of my old phonological awareness packets also.  There are four worksheets that target four different areas: rhyming, beginning and ending sounds, segmenting and blending syllables, and segmenting and blending phonemes.  Here is a preview of one of the worksheets:

Just print the sheet, get out your book, and you are ready to go!

Hope you enjoy!
