Counting Phonemes Interactive Activity

This interactive activity has been designed to engage students in a fun and interactive way as they practise counting phonemes in words. The activity is perfect for children in early year levels who are learning to identify and count the sounds in words. 

With a forest theme, students need to look at the picture on the slide, segment the word and count the phonemes. They must then pick what number represents the number of phonemes within the word.  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Allow students to work with a peer or in a whole group setting with support from the teacher. Encourage students to tap or clap the phonemes to help with counting. You might also provide manipulatives that can be used to remember how many phonemes are in each word.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Have students have a go at writing the graphemes that match the phonemes on a whiteboard after they have segmented the provided word.

🧑‍🏫 Group Learning

Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or mini whiteboards.
