We have finished working with segmenting and have moved onto blending the words…making the sounds touch…so we can read words ! For children to understand what they read, they must be able to decode words rapidly and accurately. When they can read words fluently, their attention is freed to focus on comprehension.
Use self-checking puzzles! Blend the sounds together, make them touch so you can read the words. Find the picture that matches. If the puzzle pieces match, you did it correctly and you win the prize!
What’s the prize for segmenting and blending, you ask?
You get to write the word on the paper! So exciting for kindergarten!
The students then take the paper home to share with parents!
What do you do to practice reading cvc words!
