I hope you find it a useful tool to help reinforce teaching phonics.
Some of my co-workers use this for as homework and others use them in class at a center or during rotations.
When I use this, my students and I brainstorm words at the beginning of the week that have the particular sound we are working on that week. We then sort the words based on where the sound is located in the word. Through this practice, we work on various phonemic
awareness skills: blending, segmenting, and isolating phonemes. We also use phonics, the use of the code, sound-symbol relationships, to label each of the pictures. The children sound out each of the words independently using their knowledge of phonics. Some use inventive spelling.
I also find this activity to be a useful assessment tool.
