Segmenting and Blending are important skills for readers to master, but they are often difficult skills for struggling readers. This year my RTI groups were made up primarily of boys; boys who would rather be playing with cars than segmenting and blending. That’s when Road Readers were born. I found a way to combine the kids’ love of cars with blending and segmenting practice.
The child moves the car as he segments the words. When the car reaches the end of the road, the child blends the sounds together to read the word. I found if we practiced the activity first with a picture clue, the students were able to understand the concept much quicker.
This packet includes
-8 full color segmenting/blending roads with pictures (note that the words with blends have two versions: one with the blend together and one with the blend segmented depending on how you wish to instruct your students.)
-8 black and white segmenting/blending roads with pictures
-22 full color segmenting/blending roads without pictures
-22 black and white segmenting/blending roads without pictures
-2 center worksheets where students segment, read, then cut and glue a picture to match the word read.
-2 center worksheets segment the sounds in a picture and record the sounds they hear to write the word.
