Puzzles for practicing consonant blends, consonant digraphs, short vowel sounds, long vowel sounds, and r-controlled vowels. These phonics puzzles are perfect for centers or word work. Students could work on them independently, with partners, or in a small group with teacher guidance. There are no printed words, so students must listen for and identify the individual sounds in the words.
I recommend printing on card stock and laminating for durability. Download the preview for a better look at what's included.
*Consonant digraphs (fr, fl, cr, cl, tr, dr, sw, sp, sl, sk, sn, st, gl, gr, bl, br, pr, pl)- 24 puzzles
*Consonant blends (ch, sh, th, wh, ph)- 24 puzzles
*Short vowels- 30 puzzles (6 for each vowel)
*Long vowels- 30 puzzles (6 for each vowel)
*R-controlled vowels (ar, er, ir, or, ur)- 18 puzzles
Use them individually or mix and match to practice contrasting different sounds. (e.g. Contrast short i with short e, short a with long a, etc.)
