This is a Smartboard Lesson that provides 7 slides of instruction and guided practice with identifying the initial, medial, or final sound that is different between two words. I have included an additional student worksheet, in both Excel or PDF format, for independent practice or assessment.
Students are given two words, identify which sound is different, and indicate that sound's placement using Elkonin boxes.
*This type of activity is used on many formal and informal assessments to assess students' phonemic awareness knowledge.
**Help students understand and practice test formats using this lesson.
Meets both Common Core Language Arts and Arizona English Language Proficiency Standards.
