Our students learn best through a hands-on approach to teaching. Here is a fun hands-on activity wheels 25 pack that focuses on blends. It can be used during your word work time, centers, small group, or independent work.
The emphasis is on 20 double consonant beginning blends: bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, tr, sl, sk, sm, sn, sp, st, sw.
There are two types of wheels; the students will use sliders on the first set to make the words – there are 25 wheels in this set. Copy them on card stock, laminate and cut out the circle. Use a sharp knife to cut along the two black lines then place a strip from the back through the front. The students will be able to slide the strip to reveal letters to form words. I have also included blank strips for you to add letters. There are two sliders for each blend with both short and long vowel word chunks.
The next wheel set of 5, features the pictures and the students will clip the correct beginning blend on the wheel to match the pictures.
The accompanying matching worksheets allow the students to write some of the words they made and a sentence. Students can also draw pictures for the words they made.
