Phoneme segmentation is an important skill for your little blossoms to practice. Spring into Phoneme Segmentation! provides an opportunity for your class to segment and count sounds in 2, 3, 4 and 5 phoneme words in a fun, hands on way.
Easy to prepare (just print, laminate and slice!) this resource comes with 2 worksheets for students to 'show what they know'. One requires cutting and pasting to sort words by the number of phonemes, while students write numbers on the other.
2 phonemes – bee, pear, bow, two, egg, key, eight, tie
3 phonemes – sun, book, sheep, bird, house, dog, mouse, kite
4 phonemes – igloo, cloud, frog, yoyo, puzzle, crab, socks, lamp
5 phonemes – monkey, cherries, bubbles, robot, grapes, plant, carrot, clowns
(For my US friends, you might count the word pear as having 3 phonemes. With the Australian accent this word has 2 - p/ear. This will not affect the way you use this resource. :)
