This phonics lesson introduces the frequently used consonant + r blend. This blend occurs at the beginning of many words that children at this age will encounter in their independent reading practice. Through this lesson, the students will gain an increased familiarity with these words through speaking, reading, and writing. This lesson concludes with a fun game that will help reinforce their skills. Additionally, after using the game as a whole class, it is easily transferable to a literacy center. It can be adapted to meet the needs of your class and works with all types of phonics instruction. This lesson is aligned to CCSS for kindergarten, but can be adapted for other age groups as well.
