Phonics Boxes are activities formatted for the boxes available at Michaels that contain 16 smaller boxes. These activities can also be stored in 6x9 brown envelopes or any other way you would like to store them. Each “box” contains a sound or syllable sort and a flashcard activity/game. The cards can also be used just as flashcards and, if laminated, you can have your students use dry erase markers to highlight phonic concepts (such as vowels, digraphs, blends, etc.) There is a title card for the front of the box or envelope and directions. I use double-sided tape to adhere them.
“Football” is an activity for identifying and reading closed and vowel-consonant-e words.
For the word sort, students will decide if the word is a closed syllable or a vowel-consonant-e syllable. 60 word cards are included.
For the game “Football”, add the 30 “Touchdown” and “Field Goal” cards to the 60 word cards and shuffle. Students take turns reading the word cards. If they get a “Touchdown” card, they get two extra turns. If they get a “Field Goal” card, they get one extra turn. The student with the most cards at the end is the winner.
