Beginning Sound Blending is just in time for back to school! This packet is aimed at taking students who know their sounds to the next level – Sound Blending. It is also a great review for students at the beginning of first grade. The packet is a ready to print no prep product that is ready to help you jump into sound blending with short O. The activities focus on blending onsets with rimes in CVC words, which supports best practices in helping students attain success in beginning literacy.
The rimes (O word families) that are highlighted include: ob, od, og, ock, om, on, op, oss, ot, ox. There are five activity sheets per rime that focus on: saying the short O sound out loud, blending short O with a consonant to form a rime (word family), reading rimes out loud, blending the onset (beginning sound) with the rime (word family) to form a word, reading and writing the word, using the word in a meaningful activity to solidify word meaning, spelling the word, blending new onsets with the same rime to form new words, and reading and writing the new words within the word family.
There is a one-page assessment to determine how students are progressing in their sound blending/word reading skills midway through the packet and at the end. Additionally, there is a nine-page sound blending review section at the end of the packet as well as a five-page assessment. The assessment is aimed at determining whether students can a) generalize their sound blending/word reading skills to novel words, b) rhyme, and c) fill-in the correct onset (beginning sound) to spell a word and draw a line to the picture of that word.
This is a comprehensive packet that is designed to help your students understand and experience success in sound blending and individual word reading.
