Do you have a child that struggles with substituting similar looking words in oral reading over and over again? In working with struggling readers, I've observed that visual discrimination can be a real roadblock to reading fluency, so I created these materials to use for my tutorial sessions to address this type of struggle. Included in this set are 10 grid pages with random look-alikes that can be laminated and used in a game type activity or used for rapid reading, nine pages of look-alike words that can be cut apart for various games and flashing, four pages of using the words in context, and four pages of tongue twisters and sentence for oral reading practice. The final page includes suggested activities. This set of materials can be used in a small group setting or in a tutorial block.
In case confusion is observed with other words not in the set, blank forms have been added to allow the teacher to make his/her pages.
If you have any questions on how it works, please ask. I've used the sets with several students, and it really seemed to make a difference for them.
