I truly enjoy using these activities to support phonics development.
You could have students use these grids as independent work or as center work, but I prefer using them whole class in order to support learning.
The Phonics Grids do take some time to complete, but they don't need to be a one day project. It's up to you. Do the entire page or just a portion of it. It is also a great backup plan for a sub. The students are involved in meaningful work, it takes some time to complete, and it doesn't take a lot of explanation.
Thank you in advance for your feedback, and please feel free to follow me to receive notifications of my new postings!
