Sharpen Reading Activities


Breaking Words Apart

In this activity, Learners carefully divide eight target words into their individual sounds. After hearing a word, the Learner taps out it sounds, then drags in letter tiles for each sound, spelling the word. Learners will clearly identify which letter or letters go with which sound in the word. For example, the Learner should arrange the letters in "thick" this way: th-i-ck. To reinforce the connection between letters and sounds, we ask the Learner to spell out loud individual sounds or combinations of sounds in the word.
