Another activity the kids really liked is Buzzy Buddies Beginning Blends. The kids match beginning blends with various word endings (families) to make new words. You can get a copy from our TpT store. Click the picture below.
Or you can use it in small group instruction and then place it in the center as a table activity. Very versatile!
|Small group instruction....|
|After making as many words as they can with the blends, students write their words in their journals. When finished, they read their words to a peer or to the teacher.|
|In summary, students manipulate the cards to make new words (both real and nonsense words), write the words and then practice reading the words. GREAT reading activities/strategies/practice!!|
