Spring & Summer T-Scopes (Tachistoscopes) Phoneme Segmenting of Onsets and Rimes
This is an “oldie reading ruby”, but a real keeper. Students will get to practice segmenting the onset and then the rime or word family as they slide the inserted letter list through the lines on the T-Scope. Included are 20 spring and 22 summer themed colored T-Scopes. Each has a different word family to practice reading and writing. Recording sheets are included for the word writing as well as abc order. Also 16 b/w copies are included for students to make their own T-Scope craftivities. The T-Scopes are very easy to make. Print, laminate and cut 1 rectangle. For the slits it is quickest to use an xacto knife. On the b/w ones, just print and then cut the slits, several at one time and hand out to the students to color, cut, and do the writing and abc order if desired.
Enjoy this with a small group, at a literacy station, or a take it to your seat center. Don’t forget the 16 b/w copies can be used as easy class spring/summer art projects. I hope you enjoy this Reading Ruby and will look for more of them at Gail’s Reading Rubies. Thank you so much! Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner.
