I'm putting my bug math manipulatives to good use here. :) As students segment the word, they are pushing the bugs onto the leaf.
And here you can hop the little frogs onto a lily pad. The picture card is a fish, so you would push the frogs as you say this: f-i-sh
You can get both of these "segmenting mats" for free by clicking here or on the picture below.
I included a bunch of picture cards to use with the mats, too.
