I tutor students with learning difficulties. I find they need more practice with many concepts. Some of them enjoy the challenge of making words. I want them to enjoy reading and feel much practice with words is essential.
I do not use pictures on my worksheets for they are very distracting to students who are struggling with reading and leads to guessing. I do use lots of color as it helps their eyes to focus on specific areas.
The purpose of these worksheets is to get the students to think and make real words. Each worksheet has one section with blends at the beginning of words. Worksheets also have a section with blends in the middle of words or at the end. Students choose the right blends to complete each word. The third section has scrambled words.
This set of worksheets has five pages, in color. The second part is the same with worksheets in black and white for those who wish to save ink. The last part contains the Answer Key.
I hope these worksheets can be a benefit for you with your students. You have permission to use these for as many years as you wish, but please do not share them with other teachers.
