Sometimes when students are reading, they come across a new word that doesn't make sense when they sound it out. One strategy that may help is flipping the sound to an alternate sound, for example, flipping the hard and soft c and g sounds, and short vowels to long vowels.

This strategy teaches students to try an alternate sound they know for a grapheme when the usual sound doesn't work.

This resource includes everything you need to teach and reinforce the 'Flip the Sound' decoding strategy in a fun, exciting way!!
