Phoneme-grapheme mapping helps students see the link between phonemes (sounds we hear in a word) and graphemes (the letters that represent the sounds). This resources focuses on consonant blends. The map boxes each represent a sound or blend of sounds. Because students are usually taught to blend consonant blends together rather than separate the two letter sounds, they are combined into one sound box to enforce blending of the sounds together when reading. Two activities included.
Activity One= students are given consonant blend words and are asked to split the word into the phonemes that make up the word
Activity Two= students are given blank phoneme-grapheme maps; the following three pages are manipulatives to cut out and put together on the blank maps to create consonant blend words; make multiple copies of map page so students can paste words or laminate it all and make it a re-usable word work station
