Tap Light Segmenting
The idea is to have 2-4 tap lights out. I have picture cards that I keep with them. I have just been using black and white pictures copied and laminated from the book Letter of the Week. It has great picture cards for each letter of the alphabet. The child takes a card and then taps a light on for each segment they hear in a word. Then, they have to tap the lights off to begin the next word. For example, rock would be be 3 taps (1 tap per light /r/ /o/ /k/).
The lights were 4 for $3.96 at Wal-Mart. I think they take AA batteries, but I can't remember how many.
