This Make-A-Word Hop sticker is laminated with dry-erase material, meaning that it can be written on over and over again! Since it is also a high-quality sticker, this Make-A-Word Hop can be stuck onto any smooth surface. Place it on the floor to create an interactive spot in your classroom or hallway. Conversely, place it on a smooth wall for daily spelling practice.
Make-A-Word Hop can be used in a variety of phoneme recognition activities. Begin writing letters in the four colorful blocks on the top row to form words.
Have students stand in the blocks on the bottom row with feet pictured in them. Build phonemic awareness skills by asking them to make the sound of the letter in the block above their feet. Students can jump from one block to the next and sound out simple 3 or 4-letter words.
Introduce simple 3 letter words for preschoolers. Practice more difficult 3 letter words for kindergartners. Start with just letters on the mat and have students recite the word correctly. Or, challenge students to write out their spelling words on the mat.
Advance to 4-letter words when students are ready. Furthermore, have students determine the missing letters from a word by only writing two or three letters on the mat.
Watch your students’ phonemic awareness and reading skills improve as a result of practice on this mat. Best of all, movement-based learning will boost young students’ comprehension and memory retention, while also improving gross motor skills. Students will master letter sounds in words. Individual sounds will become spoken language in effect.
Children love to move, play, and draw with markers, so this mat is perfect for keeping busy hands and bodies engaged! Try kinesthetic activities for making words in your classroom.

Sample Activity: Reading the Word
- First, write two letters of a word in two of the boxes on the mat. For example, leave the first box blank, then write “a” in the next box and “t” in the third box.
- Ask your student to fill in the missing letter to the word. In this instance, you would say “Complete the word ‘cat’ on the mat.”
- The student will write “c” in the first box using a dry-erase marker.
- Then, have the student hop in the box below the “c”. Ask them to make the sound of the letter.
- Repeat this with the rest of the letters in the word.
- Finally, have the student recite the complete word.
