Product Description
Thank you for purchasing Race Car Blending! Your students will love practicing blending with this fun and engaging new tool. (Visit my store to purchase the full 4.2)

The words are selected based on the Grade 1 Wonders Series, Unit 4 Week 2.

Being a special education teacher, I have ensured that this activity is designed for ALL learners: visual, kinesthetic, auditory, even unique learners such as students with dyslexia.

The font that is used (this font) is one that was designed for students with dyslexia, or students who may just have a tendency to reverse letters.

Each word has a specifically colored background to indicate the targeted skill:
Long a words- magenta
Long e words- green
Long i words- teal
Long u words- red
Short vowel words- blue

Additionally, letters have visual cues to support students as they are sounding out a word:
Consonants are black
Vowel sounds are red
Long vowel sounds have a line above them to indicate the long sound to students.
Silent letters are dark gray and smaller than other letters.

Print and laminate the following pages. Students slowly roll a toy car over each sound to blend each word.
After a student successfully blends the words on one sheet, he/she may then search for those words on his/her “I can read it” self-check sheet. I laminate this as well, so students may re-use it.
