When teaching kids to read and spell, it is always fun to have themes that make it interesting. Today I have some Garden Themed Spelling Word Mats to share with you. (see also my Farm Themed spelling word mats)
These spelling word mats are for beginner readers and spellers. Only the first letter is blank of each word.
There are 12 spelling words included with this garden themed set.
Garden-Themed Spelling Word List:
Each card includes a picture of the word as well as the word spelled out with the first letter of the word missing.

The main goal for these is to help young ones learn first word sounds, and practice spelling words with little pressure. If kids have the chance to practice spelling and learning words in a fun way, they will become familiar with words and spelling patterns.
This printable set is a great one to keep in your file for the days you’d like to change up the spelling lesson! They could be used for pre-k through 1st grade.
We used some plastic letter tiles with our spelling word mats. You can definitely do these with any replacement. Scrabble tiles work well. Or if you have magnet letters in your house, those can be used, too.
If you have no letter tiles, you can print some letters for kids or let kids just write in the missing letters. Make them reusable by putting them inside a sheet protector or laminating them.
This week I am doing all garden-themed activities. I am hosting a new Facebook group for preschool & Kindergarten educators or parents. This week’s theme is all gardening ideas! Come join us for more ideas!
