What educators are saying

My students really enjoyed the game section after doing activities because they were really trying to remember the information.
Great resource for helping students to focus on listening without having to use paper/pencil all the time.

⚡️ Why is this important for Reading?

Auditory discrimination and working memory are vital skills for both reading and writing. The child needs to hear the sounds, remember the sequence, and then blend the sounds to discover the word (i.e., c-a-t = cat | READING). He must also listen to the word and separate the individual sounds (i.e., monster = m-o-n-s-t-er | WRITING). With good decoding skills, the child can string the words together and use prior knowledge and intuition to develop reading comprehension skills.

These 30 task cards include Games and Activities for:

  • Auditory Discrimination
  • Auditory Figure-Ground Discrimination
  • Auditory Memory
  • Auditory Sequencing

NOTE: Classroom resources are needed to do these tasks.

Some of the Reading Foundational Skills - Phonological Awareness:


  • Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).
  • Recognize and produce rhyming words.
  • Count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words.
  • Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words.

Grade 1

  • Distinguish long from short vowel sounds in spoken single-syllable words.
  • Orally produce single-syllable words by blending sounds (phonemes), including consonant blends.
  • Isolate and pronounce an initial, medial vowel, and final sound (phonemes) in spoken single-syllable words.
