The “glued” sound in nk, always a tricky one for my Kinders to hear in words. So, I made a unit for them to practice words with the sound! This is the finished product!
In this unit you will find:
-3 types of write the room cards (use one or all 3, you decide! I print all 3 and use them in different ways!) and response sheet
-Wall card and “Mini Word Wall” of the words in the unit
-28 break apart/puzzle cards and response sheet
-Pocket chart activity sorting ”nk” and non-nk words. One set has the words and one set has just pictures. The other set has the words included. A student sorting response sheet is included so that this may be used in a center pocket chart activity.
-26 skunk themed word cards to use as word wall cards or as “word rings” for fluency practice! (or sorting word families, rhyming words and more!)
