Assessing nonsense words measures a student’s understand of correct letter/sound correspondence.
When students read nonsense words they are relying solely on their letter-sound knowledge to decode the words!
These beginning nonsense word cards help my students to decode individual phonemes and then blend them together to be a better reader!
I use these nonsense word cards as a building block before introducing the single nonsense word card. I use these with the students that struggle with blending the word as a whole.
Use them during small group reading, or put them on a ring to use for practice on the go!
