Segmenting Phonemes + Sorting Activity

This sorting activity is a great way for students to practise their segmenting skills of phonemes in 3-5 phoneme words. Students pick up a picture and name the picture. Then, they chant and tap out each phoneme in the word. Have the student state how many sounds they hear. Students then need to place that card under the 3 dots for 3 phonemes, 4 dots for 4 phonemes, or 5 dots for 5 phonemes. Play continues until all of the picture cards have been sorted.

You might like to extend this activity by having students dictate and record each phoneme.
