A set of 32 task cards prompting students to use their phonics knowledge to find words that include specific sounds.

This teaching resource is a great way for students to practise their phonics knowledge through physical activity.

This set of 32 task cards prompts students to find words that fit a specific description while they simultaneously perform some type of physical movement. Simply spread out a set of word cards you feel are appropriate for your students, and then read a description card. While performing the action given on the card, students must find a word that matches the description. Once everyone has found a spot, have each child read their word to the class.

These task cards are levelled for your convenience. The first 16 pink cards can be used with CVC words, while the remaining 16 green cards are meant to be used with CVCe words as well as words that include blends and vowel digraphs.

This resource works great using any of the word cards from the Dolch Sight Words Resource Collection.
