Allow children to have success in reading at their own individual level. These picture word match cards are designed to provide children with the opportunity to experience success in reading as they apply their letter sounds knowledge to sound out words. Once children can identify the sounds for the letters S, A, T, I, P and N there are so many words they can all ready read.
All children in my class have their own words that they practice to read and match the pictures based on the letter sounds they all ready know. When children can independently read all the words without needing the picture cues they are ready to move up to the next sound group. I use this activity as part of my reading rotations. The children love it and it their confidence and decoding skills have improved significantly since I started using this activity.
Print each set of words on a different coloured paper to make differentiating word groups easier.
