This phonics bundle includes poems, recommended mentor texts, and activities for 39 different phonemes. This bundle is perfect for K-2 for students learning phonemes to enhance their decoding and reading skills.
The packet includes a list of words for each phoneme and provides lines for students to add other words with the same phoneme/spelling pattern; sorting/writing activities for phonemes that sound the same, but have different spellings; poems that contain each specific phoneme; example mentor texts that include the phoneme to strengthen understanding.
Phonemes covered include: sh, th, ch, ow (long and short), ou, ing, all, ar, or, oo, ui, ew, ice, ace, oa, ea, ee, igh, ai, high, ay, ir, er, ur, oi, oy, aw, au, aught, ought, wr, kn, wh, ph, ed, ion/tion/sion.
Poetry is such a great way for students to practice fluency and enhance phonics skills. I created this bundle to help my students recognize and learn these phonemes and create their own poetry anthology throughout the school year! It is such a great keepsake for students to take home at the end of the year, and is perfect for kids to read to themselves during the literacy block.
I found that when I started using these activities and incorporating the poems into the curriculum that students' reading skills were much more enhanced and students found a great deal of joy finding and highlighting the phonemes in their poems and other places where they found them!
