The student will blend sounds of letters to make words.
Copy on card stock, laminate, cut, and assemble.
Students make words using consonant and vowel cubes.
1. Place the three cubes on a flat surface. Provide each student with a recording sheet.
2. Taking turns, students roll the cubes. Place each cube on the matching number on the recording sheet. Say the sound of each letter, blend them, and read the word orally (e.g.,"/k//o//b/, cob”).
3. Determine if the word is real or nonsense and record it in the corresponding column on the recording sheet.
4. Continue until at least ten words are recorded.
