A ‘Blend’ Activity - Segment With 'Blends'
This is a set of 21 ‘blend’ segmenting strips with 6 pictures containing a blend on each strip. Two of the strips have pictures ending with double consonants, 2 strips have pictures that contain a blend and the ‘ch’, ‘th’, or ‘sh’ digraph, 2 strips have a blend and the ‘ck’ ending, and 3 strips have a blend and ‘sneaky e’. These segmenting strips are great for literacy stations, intervention teachers, or for an activity to do while you are in a guided reading group.
Print the strips on cardstock and laminate them.
Give children a segmenting strip. They will segment each word In order to spell it. A recording sheet is included to spell the words on. A section is added to the bottom of each sheet to use for differentiation. The children will pick a word and use it in a sentence in this section. If this isn’t needed, just cut the section off. If some children aren’t ready to spell, they can record the blend only. There is a number on each segmenting strip to record on the recording sheet.
Instead of using the recording sheet, the children can spell the words on a whiteboard or use magnetic letters on a magnetic board.
