Phonetics is a teaching tool used to help readers learn the connection between letters and the SOUNDS they make.
Beginning with vowels, the mystery picture is hidden in boxes with words that either have one of three A sounds, Long, Short or AW, and the long oo sound:
Cat- short a
Made- long a
haul, saw- AW sound
droop - oo sound
Students have a challenge to reveal the mystery picture as they read the single syllable words in this worksheet. All boxes are the same size so they won't know what it is, until they begin to read!
. Four crayons and you are ready to go!
