Making word sandwiches in Arizona

When we are learning to read in Arizona...we make sandwiches, word sandwiches that is.

I cut the consonant's out of white poster board, you can use brown if you prefer wheat bread, and the vowels are different colors of felt to facilitate ham, tomato, cheese etc.

I place the "ingredients" out on plates as a station and give the kids a starter word to get them going. It has survived several years and is a very popular activity at our house.
