Every teacher knows that having a solid understanding of letters and sounds is essential for reading and writing. Your kids will love these fun hands on phonics activities that will develop their reading and writing skills and build their confidence. This resource would be great to include during literacy rotations.
This resource includes 24 levels with a focus on letter sounds, short vowels, magic e, blends, digraphs and long vowels. There are 16 words to each level with a total of 384 words in the pack. Each level has a double sided activity sheet that corresponds with the focus.
Students use hands on letters to match the picture sounds and build words. Underneath each picture, place the first letter of each picture. Students will then be able to sound out the entire word once all boxes have been assigned a letter. Students then fill in the corresponding activity sheets to reinforce what they have learnt and record their work. A document outlining the words for each list has been included.
The full pack includes word cards for the following phonics areas:
• Short Vowels
• Magic E Words
• Long Vowels
Easy to cut, laminate and store in plastic envelopes or tubs.
Alternatively, you can simply place into clear sleave folders.
Students in my classes have transferred the sounding out skills reinforced through the use of this resources, and have then applied their knowledge during both reading and writing activities. These students have displayed significant gains in both knowledge and confidence.
TIP: Includes poster displaying pictures for each letter or phoneme. Expose whole class to pictures during introductory lesson. Possibly have available for students to refer back to in order to promote independent learning.
