This Introduce Middle Sounds Segmenting (Mico Version) lesson plan also includes:
Mico the puppet offers a phoneme challenge for emerging readers: can they find the object with the middle sound they hear? Use the fantastic set of full-color picture cards to play this game with small groups or even the whole class. With three cards face up, Mico says a middle phoneme for one of them (be sure all have different vowel sounds). Learners identify the picture, saying the word and segmenting it into phonemes. These picture cards are a great resource and this is just one of many ways you can use them.
