This set of four Word Building/Spelling Boards, from Lil' Reading Scientists Literacy Solutions TM, can be used with any Balanced Reading or Orton-Gillingham curriculum! Children build three and four letter words on them with foam letters, or write on them directly, as they practice their encoding skills. Print enough for your whole class or small group, or print and laminate one set to put in your language arts center! This material can also be used with tokens or blocks, for Phonemic Awareness activities involving counting words in phrases, counting syllables in multisyllabic words, and counting phonemes in words. Students enjoy the fun Lil' Reading Scientists' characters that adorn the boards. These boards make encoding and phonemic awareness activities fun to do!
