Phoneme Blending: "Popcorn- Pop N' Blend Phoneme Blending" set 1 was created to help your students practice reading phonemes and then blending them to make words. This set contains 20 large phoneme cards, 20 "Popcorn" game cards, a recording sheet, and an answer key. Each large phoneme card contains a 3 phoneme, CVC word. Each letter has a piece of popcorn under it to guide students to "pop" from one letter to the next. A visual is also included to aid students. You can challenge your students by covering the picture with a post-it until students make a word and then reveal the picture to show whether they were correct. These large cards are great for initial whole group instruction, small group instruction, and RTI. Game cards can be use to play "Popcorn" where students "pop" from one card to the next reading and blending the sounds while recording answers on their recording sheets. Game cards would also be great in a center and for use in RTI. If you enjoy this set, look for set 2 with 20 new words in my store. Happy Blending!!
