Early readers and even older students often struggle with big words. They become easily overwhelmed and often try to sound out every letter they see. Chunking words is a strategy that I have found very helpful to train students to look for parts they see in words they don't know.
This pack includes a description of how I used the chunking strategy in my classroom, an anchor chart and 1 sample sheet for each: short vowels with blends, short vowels with digraphs and short vowels with endings.
Check out the link for the full 44 page pack with 12 double sheets for each category.
Also check out CHUNK-IT for r-controlled vowels and long vowels!
