Product Description
This Promethean ActivInspire activity is designed for a minilesson or guided practice activity. The students are presented with pictures, and they must isolate the beginning sound(s) in each word pictured, focusing on affricate and often-confused affricate sounds. The students distinguish among affricates (/j/ and /ch/) and often-confused consonant blends making similar sounds (/dr/ and /tr/).  Consequently, the students will also identify three mistaken blends used to pronounce affricates (/jr/, /hr/, and /chr/). There are two hidden features built into the flipchart: first, the sound of the beginning phoneme is embedded, so that students can hear the sound correctly (phonemic awareness), and second, the beginning letter/blend/digraph is hidden and can be revealed to clarify the letters (phonics). This activity may also complement your word study program for students covering these sounds.

A complete lesson plan is embedded in the flipchart.
