We have finished working with segmenting and have moved onto blending the words which means making the sounds touch…so we can read words!

One of the most engaging ways to practice reading cvc words is by using self-checking puzzles! The cut lines are all different so kiddos don’t learn incorrectly. 
First, the kiddos pull a word card and blend the sounds together. Many need a reminder to make the sounds touch so they can read the words easily. This is called successive blending and it helps eginning readers and readers with memory issues.  
Then the kiddos search and find the picture that matches the cvc word.  If the puzzle pieces match, they did it correctly and 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!
