|Updated Version Includes black & white chart too!|
Some of the students that I will have in this cycle of RtI need some extra work with blends. They struggle with associating the two sounds with the two letters that make those sounds. Most can hear and associate the first sound to the correct letter, but some have difficulty with the second sound/letter when reading and writing.
I wasn't completely satisfied with the blends & digraphs chart that I was currently using. So I decided to make a new one (very top photo) that can be posted in my room. And I can print it out, place each one in a plastic sleeve and put in the student's reader notebooks. Then they will have one right at the table to reference as they need to!
My students need some practice at isolating the beginning sound and then identifying the letters that make those sounds. So I used these blends and digraphs in a game: I have Who Has! Kids love to play that game! I learned about it many years ago and it is still popular.
I used the most common blends and digraphs for these cards. I will be creating a new set that has the blends and digraphs that are a bit more difficult as a companion to this set.
Update: Here is the new set!
I know my students are going to love playing this game during RtI and I am going to love seeing them improve and apply these skills to their reading and writing!!
