This Spalding Phonogram Build a Word resource contains phonogram cards and corresponding word frames. These can be used to combine phonograms in various ways, to create words.
The cards include all 70 phonograms (as well as several of the more common additional phonograms). Both colour/color and black and white options are included. Two different font styles have also been provided. The Build a Word frames provide a scaffold for students to complete their word building. Three styles of frame have been included (in color/colour and black and white options). The frames provide space for 2, 3 and 4 phonogram words.
Students can use the phonograms to experiment with different ways to create words. This activity is easily differentiated, with one group working on single letter phonograms and another group using the multiple letter phonograms. The groups could also be organised by the number of phonograms in a word. I like to place a Velcro strip on the frames and Velcro dots on the back of the cards. These cards can also be used in many other different ways – string them onto a split ring for flip through practice, play snap or memory games, display them in your room or any other flash card activities that you currently use with your students.
