Sharpen Reading Activities


I Spy

In this activity Learners are shown a small number of letter combinations representing a single sound, such as ay, ow, and ea as well as a small number of common letter combinations that represent more than a single sound, such as wor and ing. Below the list of letter combinations is a list of words from the text the Learner has just read. The task for the Learner is to click on the words that have one of the target letter combinations. Clicking on a word highlights the target letter combination. After "spying" (clicking on) all the appropriate words, the Learner reads each highlighted word and identifies the sound for the highlighted part.
