Included are four phonemic awareness activities for segmenting: sentence segmenting, onset and rime segmenting, phoneme segmenting- with sound boxes, and phoneme sorting. Please note, this activity is included in the phonemic awareness bundle.

What's Included And How to Use:

  • I can and focus cards
  • Sentence Segmenting: Using the sentence segmenting: sentences and answer key page, read each sentence to students. Each sentence has a matching picture for students to refer to. Students will segment and count how many words are in each sentence. Then, students will sort the pictures by how many words are in each sentence.
  • Onset and Rime Segmenting: Students will segment each word by their onsets and rimes. Onset-rime segmentation is separating the initial consonant or consonant cluster (the onset) from the vowel and consonant sounds that come after it (the rime).
  • Phoneme Segmenting: Students will segment the words by their individual sounds. These include sounds boxes. Students can tap out the sounds, add manipulatives when they segment, or smash Play-Doh (pictured) as they segment each word.
  • Phoneme Sorting: Students will segment the words by their individual sounds and sort.
  • I’ve also included answer keys. You may not need these but I know sometimes it may not be clear what exactly the picture is of. I put the names of the pictures at the bottom of each page and there is a one page answer key included as well.

*Teach these in whatever sequence you see fit. I would suggest: sentence segmenting, onset-rime segmenting, phoneme segmenting, and phoneme sorting. However; you know your students best so use your best judgment here.

Why use these drills?:

I created these activities because I was really neglecting phonemic awareness in my instruction! I wanted something that I could use as a quick drill with my students or as an intervention. I like to divide these up and do a few each day during my daily review (during this time I go over letters/sounds and sight words.) I put them in my pocket chart and use them with my groups. You can also use these during guided reading or with small groups. Using these daily or a few times weekly, you really see your students phonemic awareness skills grow!
