Sharpen Reading Activities


Reading Word Parts

In this activity, Learners are presented with a list of parts the words they have been studying, such as "ap" and "ot." We ask the Learner to read the word parts out loud. Learners who are still acquiring the skill of blending sounds together will find sounding out two-sound word parts easier than sounding out three-sound words like "mop" and "tap." In addition, being able to instantly recognize the pronunciation of parts of words larger than individual speech sounds is a critical component of the ability to recognize a large number of words automatically.
