I use this pack in my first grade classroom when teaching
“Blends.” Blends are two or three letter combinations of consonants that come together to make a more specific, blended sound.
This packet includes:
3 board games templates
1. For 4 players
2. For 2 players or teams
3. For 2-4 players as seen fit
4 sets of cards
1. For the 3 letter S blends: scr, spr, spl, str, squ
2. For the 2 letter S blends: sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw
3. For the 2 letter R blends: br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr
4. For the 2 letter L blends: bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl
**A total of 225 words The words listed include a variety of difficulties and essential phonetic skills including: blends, two-letter digraphs, short and long vowels sounds, silent e, adjacent vowels, bossy R, pig pens, and the 5 rules of Y, as well as irregular words. I included them all so that you can differentiate your games and sorts to fit your students and classroom needs.
Sort heading cards: one for each blend to be used with the cards if wanted, instead of playing the games. Also, included are recording sheets for blend sorts with blank options to be altered by you as needed.
Book Searches for each blend (4) + an additional blank search for you to manipulate as needed for your classroom/students.
Posters depicting each type of blend to use in Guided Reading or for large group phonics instruction.
The games, sorts, book searchers, and posters can all be used in large group setting- mini lessons, introductions, or interactive activities; small groups or guided reading situations; seat work, assessments, or a literacy centers.
