When students are learning to read, it is critical that they be able to identify and recognize the various chunks that letters and combinations of letters make in words while reading. This colorful set of 28 word chunks (also known as sound/spelling patterns or graphemes as they are called in Appendix A of the Common Core) created using a simple double bubble design that is pleasing to eye, works well to accomplish this teaching and learning task for both teachers and students. When using these word chunks bubble posters in your phonics and spelling instruction from week to week, students' awareness of word chunks will increase and giving them a 'shout-out' when they see them will be very gratifying to them (and you...because you know it's working, and they're getting it!) These wall posters are attractive and provide an anchor for word learning in your classroom.
The use of these word chunks in your phonics and spelling instruction (regardless of the phonics or spelling program you are currently using) correlates with the teaching and learning of Common Core Standards for K, 1 and 2 for Reading: Foundational Skills - Standard 3 "Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words."
This set includes the most common "graphemes" from the page 17 of Appendix A Common Core ELA: ay, sh, oo, ea, th, ch, ing, ee, ai, oa, oy, ur, or, ir, ar, wr, ou, ow, ey, wh, igh, ed, ck, ph, nk, dge, oi
