This set of 20 Rhyming Cut and Paste Worksheets will help you foster phonological awareness in your students.
In this product, I have tried to compare voiced and unvoiced families (ab vs. ap), word families with and without ending blends (et vs ent), and consonant nasals (mp, nt) in order to deepen a child’s fluency in hearing and manipulating sounds.
Phonemic Awareness is the ability to hear and mentally manipulate individual sounds. Phonological Awareness is a larger term that includes this ability as well as the ability to mentally manipulate onsets and rimes. These skills are the building blocks of reading. Research indicates that fluency in these skills is vital in early reading acquisition.
Many of my products are designed to develop a child’s fluency in Phonological and Phonemic Awareness. I use pictures so that the child can listen to his/her own voice and feel for the sounds themselves. It is important with all picture sorting activities for the teacher to introduce pictures in advance so that the student to encourage independent success and minimize teacher interruptions.
If you are interested in other Cut and Paste activities, I have 4 other books.
