Hearing sounds in words can be difficult for young students who are still learning to read and write with students only hearing the initial sound at first.
There are two types of cards included in this document. These cards can be used in multiple ways.
The Dot-Sound cards can be used to support children as they sound out entire words. Children used their finger to point to each dot, saying the sound above. This encourages students to hear all the sounds in the words. These cards can also be used to look at word families/rhyming, with instructions outlined in the document/preview.
The Box Sound cards can be used in two different ways - using counters or with a whiteboard marker/dry erase marker. For use with a counter students are provided with three counters. They must move the counter up into the box as they say this sound, allowing them to recognise each letter (in the case of these CVC words) has an individual sound. For use with a whiteboard marker/dry erase marker students can write the sounds they hear in the word. The boxes provide support by indicating the number of sounds in the word. This would be the final step in their learning.
