Students use their letter-sounds knowledge to read each word, then use pencil to draw the matching object in the box. All short vowels are used four times, and each consonant (except q & y) is used at least once.
Can be used as practice or to assess students' ability to use letter sounds to decode as well as segment words into individual sounds.
Supports English Language Arts Common Core Standards:
•Follow words from left to right.
•Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.
•Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words.
•Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
•Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant.
•Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
