Use the cards whole group to find chunks (digraphs), blends and sneaky e’s! Children can find the chunks, sound them and then read them. Then show them a picture card that matches what they said. There are 13 different card sorts!!
• Highlight the two letter sounds (digraphs) in red and the blends in yellow to help the children sound out the word. This reminds them that occasionally two letters make one sound. Carry this strategy into your guided reading lessons.
•The cards expose the children to new vocabulary.
•Then use the cards as a pocket chart activity. Accountability worksheet included!
