Segmenting with Snowballs

We also used cotton balls to segment the sounds with movement and then wrote the words on a snowball. The writing of the letters always takes a back seat to the stretching of the words. I only have the students write the letters they know.
Students that have a difficult time recalling the formation of the letters need a little extra help. I model with a ample first, and then they can write right after me! It really helps with making the letters correctly.
You can find out exactly how at Snowmen Segmenting.

This Easy Segmenting Activity is so much fun for students and it actually helps learners look through words which improves reading skills.
