Readers practice reading words with the same letter sound to connect those letters and sounds. They recognize beginning consonant sounds by reading and listening to a story that highlights select words. They also construct a story by actively choosing words, use picture clues to aid comprehension, and match beginning consonant sounds.
Pairs or groups of beginning readers choose cards from two stacks: one with consonant blends, the other with word parts. You have made cards from words with either initial or final consonant blends and cut them to separate the blend from the rest of the syllable. The cards are shuffled. Children choose a card from each stack, decide if the two make a real word. They practice pronouncing the sounds and listening for real words. Differentiate using two- or three-letter blends.
These are challenging phonics review sheets. On the first page, learners match the end sounds to the pictures and write a rhyming word for each word. For the second page, pupils choose an end sound to complete a series of incomplete words. They finish by drawing a picture for the last set of words and circling the end sound. The focus of these pages is on the final blends and digraphs ft, ld, lt, mp, and nd.
Your job is done! These 8 worksheets comprise an entire week worth of spelling. The first two worksheets focus on the suffixes ness, ment, ion, and tion. The next two cover ly and fully, the third set of two tackle consonant doubling, and the last pair focus on syllables. Print, staple, done!
Have your class work with the beginning sounds /f/ and /sl/. This activity has learners cut out pictures at the bottom of each page and paste those that begin with the letters f and sl underneath the letters themselves; the others go in a column with a trash can at the top. Through this hands-on activity, learners demonstrate phonemic awareness.
