How do you use Read ‘n Stick Mats?
1) Print and laminate each mat on sturdy cardstock. I love this affordable home laminator and laminating sheets! Then print and laminate each set of cards. Cut them apart and stick velcro dots to the pictures and backs of the cards.
2) You can certainly print the mats and cards on plain paper, and have your child match them. However, for a more durable and lasting activity, I recommend #1. A bonus of the velcro dots is that you can store the mats without the cards getting lost — just stick them on!
3) Have your child take off all the cards. Then have him read the name of the family in the center of the board. Next, he should read each card and match it to the correct picture. You will be teaching new vocabulary along the way when he gets stuck on a particular word (“What’s a sprig?”).
5) After a few times of doing this with you, this is something your child might be able to do himself.
