Sound Blending with Dog Bones

This sound blending activity accompanied a lesson designed around Spike Lee's book, Please, Puppy, Please.  CVC (and a few other vocabulary) words such as like, puppy, me (cv), gate, feed, wash, mine, call, tub, cat, walk, fetch (cvcc) were printed onto dog bone shaped pieces.  Children were given two to five words to identify at a time.  Once the missing initial sound was identified, they were prompted to find the corresponding letter to Velcro on to the bone.  After they combined the initial consonant with the rest of the word, they were allowed to feed the puppy the bones after they were correctly completed.
