Use these phonemic awareness boards to practice manipulating sounds in words.
Step 1: Cut out 2”x2” squares. I used colorful construction paper.
Note - I like to place my boards inside page protectors so students can easily write with a dry-erase marker and then wipe it off. You may also laminate.
Step 2: Tape the squares on the right-hand column only.
Instructions for Use:
For Deleting Initial Sounds, students say the picture, ex. “Mice,” and write the first sound on the line - “m.” Then, they say the new word, “Ice” and open the flap to check their answer.
For Substituting Sounds, students say the picture and delete the first sound. Then, they add in the second sound to make a word. Ex. Hat changes to Cat. They open the flap to check their answer.
