Product Description
My kids have been loving this hands on activity which helps them to 'stretch out' all the sounds they can hear in a word.

They each have a slinky and for every sound they hear in the word they stretch their slinky out. This helps them to see it is one word but they need to stretch the word out and listen carefully all sounds in the word. After hearing all sounds in the words they write it in the boxes - 1 sound in a box.

There are 3 different game boards to suit your needs

a Slinky with 3 sound boxes for basic cvc words
a Slinky with 6 sound boxes for those students writing longer words
a slinky with 6 sound boxes at the bottom - I like to places sound/phoneme tiles onto the slinky and they can then use these to put into the boxes to create the words (Use our sound/phoneme tiles)

I have version 1 and 2 back to front so I can use them for different ability groups without needed to change the whole board.

At the moment my weaker groups are using the cvc boards while my top groups are using it write word with digraphs. When they write the digraph in the boxed, both letters go in the same box as it is one sound.
