Your students will love practicing blending using this fun and engaging tool!

Using a toy car (or their finger) students blend the sounds together on each sheet until they can say each word fluently.
After students complete a blending sheet, they search for the words on their checklist and check off the ones they can read. (Words that are unchecked will be practiced again until mastered.

Being a special education teacher, I have designed this activity to benefit ALL learners: visual, kinesthetic, auditory, even unique learners such as students with dyslexia (1 in 5 students have some form of dyslexia). (2009, dyslexiahealth.com)

Each word has a specifically colored background to indicate the skill.
Long e- green
Long i- white
long o– yellow

Additionally, letters have visual cues to support students as they are sounding out each word:

-Consonants are black
-Vowel sounds are red
-Long vowel sounds have a line above them to indicate the long sound.
-Silent letters are dark grey and smaller than other letters.

This activity can be used independently or in small groups during centers (I have mine use a text-to-speech app on the iPad if they cannot figure out how to pronounce a word).
