Are you looking for a fun activity for phonics instruction? Teach consonant digraphs with these 24 multiple choice task cards. These cards are divided into 3 levels (description below) so that you can differentiate instruction. Great for students in special education, including older students in reading intervention programs, working on consonant digraphs. Pictures and words on these task cards relate to a Fall apple picking or farm theme.
You may want to laminate these cards so that they are easy to clean. This also allows students to answer directly on the cards with dry erase marker. Another option is for students to record answers on the recording sheets provided. Multiple recording sheets and answer keys are included for flexible groupings and teacher convenience. An answer key and recording sheet for #1-24 is provided if you would like to use all cards (levels 1-3) in an activity.
Level 1: (Easiest) These cards have a green background and include the following decoding patterns in 1 syllable words: cvc (consonant-vowel-consonant), blends, some vowel teams and welded sounds.
Level 2: (More challenging) These cards have a blue background and include vowel teams, words with 2 blends, r-controlled vowels, and suffixes with “ies” rules (skies).
Level 3: (Most difficult) These cards are purple and include words with multiple syllables, silent letters, and soft c (c sounding like s).
You may choose to differentiate instruction and place students in small groups according to level. In this case, you can use the recording sheets/answer keys for each level (listed as color on the sheet). A black and white copy is also included, so that you can save precious colored ink!
