Real or nonsense words or trash or treasure! You simply write letters on plastic cups (I, of course, used Red Solo Cups). I can easily switch any of the sounds out and my student can blend the new word. It works on real words and nonsense words
Sound it out parking lot with matchbox cars with a letter on each one. Instead of matchbox cars can use anything,even a paper with a letter on each one and slide into parking space as say each sound. A great way to introduce your child to blending sounds!
INSTRUCTION: This activity encourages students to blend individual letter sounds together to make words. Students practice their letter sounds and phonics in this activity. The use of a car makes the activity more engaging for students.
