Use this silly story about consonants and vowels to illustrate basic consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words. Using a picture of a slide, move different letter cards down to create word combinations. Learners get to manipulate the letter cards on their own after the guided learning piece.
Kids see, say, then count the phonemes they hear in a series of simple words. They practice counting phonemes with the teacher, then sound out the same word on their own. As they count each phoneme they write it down on their paper. A great way to connect reading and writing.
Review consonant blends with this visually-appealing and colorful presentation. It features a list of blends including ch, sh, th, tr, gr, pr, br, and more. There are pictures of objects that begin with the sound displayed on each slide. There are a variety of creative ways to use this resource.
Students strengthen their reading of new words with phonics and blending sounds in short words. They interact with word cards with short letter sounds like sit, mat, fit, etc. Each student also assesses magnetic letters to physically move together and blend the letter-sounds to read new words.
This resource is more of a suggestion than a full lesson. It explains how young pre-readers can work with their teacher to practice blending phonemes to make words. The class watches the teacher as she says and orally segments a word into its initial, medial, and final phonemic parts. They then practice doing the same thing.
