The goal of using these cards is to help your students become more familiar with reading words that may or may not be real words. When reading bigger words, they often come in contact with syllables that are unfamiliar to them. Practicing with these nonsense words helps them decode those unfamiliar syllables.
There are long and short vowels, also many blends and digraphs are included.
Print the cards, laminate, and cut apart. Store in a container, envelope, or whatever system you use.
Students will match cards to make new words. They can make long vowel nonsense words, short vowel nonsense words, words with blends, and words with digraphs. Many of the words they make could be real words. Bonus!
You can use this in an independent center, with a small group led by an adult of on your overhead projector so all can read them together.
There are 136 different cards to use.
