Directions: Cut each card into two parts. One will show the picture, and the other will show the word with onset and rime color-coding. For the word “bag”, students would say /b/ as for the onset (designated by the green circle), and they would say/ag/ for the rime (designated by the yellow and red dots connected by an orange line). They would blend the word from left to right and say “bag” as they trace the arrow with their fingers. Next, students can build the word twice like the example on the cover—once with space between the onset and rime and once with all of the letters blended
and pushed together.
Suggestion: As an extra layer of support, I utilized Fisher Price’s Snap-Lock Beads to
create an additional hands-on element for this lesson. For the onset, students can
use a green snap-lock bead. For the rime, students should snap together one yellow
bead and one green bead. As they blend the sounds, they should snap all three
together. This isn’t necessary to use the file, but it does elevate the intervention and
help make it more concrete for students!
