Nonsense Words are the Key to Reading Achievement!
The focus of this product is to have fun playing BINGO
while mastering new letter sounds with nonsense words each week. Throughout my 30-year career in K-5 education, I have experienced the most helpful practice that can be done in reading is to consistently use Nonsense Words
when a new sound is introduced. It verifies if students are sight word readers (memorizers) or if they have truly learned the sounds of letters.
How important are Nonsense Words?
When I taught three years in 5th grade and realized many students couldn’t/wouldn’t read multisyllabic words, guess where I had to go? Yes, to nonsense words as these are the syllables in words! Students remembered being successful in K-2 with nonsense words, but didn’t understand the connection! In other words, confident readers came alive!!!
