Nine pictures help your learners practice filling in consonant blends. All blends are are initial sounds and the end of the words are written out. Help your beginning pupils by providing a list of the blends that will be used; challenge your advanced writers by letting them discern what blends are needed.
Blending basic CVC letters to make words is one of the first steps to independent reading. Provided here are several images of stairs and several letters to cut and arrange. The learner rearranges the letters to form CVC patterns, sounds them out to see if they are real words, then writes the words on each stair step. This is a great early reading activity that incorporates both writing and problem solving.
There are three spinners to use in this phonic activity. Spinner one contains digraphs, spinner two contains, vowels, and spinner three contains consonants. Learners spin each of the spinners, write down the letters they got, blend them together to make a word, then determine if the word is nonsense or real. This is a wonderful activity.
Little learners will love being able to blend sounds together to make words. This game provides eight onsets and eight rimes that can be used to mix and match to sound out words. This activity is to be completed in pairs and is a great way to foster those emergent reading skills based on phonemic awareness.
Pupils practice the skill of blending phonemes smoothly together to become more fluent readers. They blend and decode printed words from their spellings to enhance the pronunciation of certain words. The Body-Coda method developed by Lloyd Eldredge is also stressed within this lesson plan.
Students practice blending sounds into words. After the instructor demonstrates blending phonemes to make words that can be read, students are divided into two teams for a word blending game. Given the initial and final sounds, students blend them into words with the team with the most points winning.
Young readers demonstrate phonemic awareness in words and blends, and recognize 100 high-frequency words. Use a nursery rhyme to point out rhyming words, and change the words by putting a new letter at the beginning. Each learner will practice different alterations. They use appropriate strategies for decoding and identifying unknown words and are given an assessment at the end to use as a guide for individualized instruction.
