What Are Fold & Focus Phonics Books?
Fold & Focus Books are a simple and effective way to practice phonics patterns. This bundle includes over 100 foldable phonics mini-books. Each page of each mini book requires students to interact with the focus sound-spelling in a different way.
I wanted this resource to be easy-to-use and flexible! This is a NO-PREP resource. You can use these as quick independent practice tools or you can easily turn the mini-books into a multi-sensory, hands-on activity with the help of some manipulatives.
Ideas for Use:
✔ Word Work practice
✔ independent practice
✔ place in book boxes to read/re-read
✔ put in desk caddy as an early finisher activity
✔ informal assessment tool
✔ take home practice
How to Use:
To use the books, all you have to do is print and fold! Easy-peasy!
Activity 1: I Can Find! For this page, students look at the focus sound-spelling. Then, they have to read each word and determine if it is a real word or nonsense word. Students only color in the real words.
Activity 2: I Can Read! For this page, students will read a short story and highlight all of the words with the focus sound-spelling. They will color in a star after each reading.
Activity 3: I Can Rainbow Write! For this page, students write the given word. Then, they trace over it using different colors to "rainbow write" the word.
Activity 4: I Can Write a Sentence! For this page, students look at the given words in the box. They write a sentence using some of the given words.
