PDF (Acrobat) Document File
Be sure that you have an application to open this file type before downloading and/or purchasing.
This download can be used as a PDF projected on the smartboard or printed out for individual student use. I use simultaneously with Fundations Alphabet Boards!
Phonics, phoneme segmentation, blending.
Blend (throwing motion) CVC, CCVC, or CVCC words, then read (catch) them!
Have students pull the letter of the sound you make until a word is formed on their Fundation Board and a word is formed in your baseballs.
"Find /b/, find /a/, find /t/"
Students will find b, a, t and place them on their board
"Okay, get your mits ready! Once I throw it (blend it), you catch it (say the word)! Don't drop it! /b/a/t"
Students clap hands together to simulate catching and say BAT.
Or use with individual letters so students can practice spelling and reading independently.
