Blending and Segmenting
This game is a fabulous resource to reinforce the skill of blending phonemes!
Blending (combining sounds) and segmenting (separating sounds) are skills that are necessary for learning to read. In order to blend and segment successfully, students first need a lot of phonological awareness practice. Developing a child’s phonological awareness is an important part of developing a reader.
If using this game as a reading center activity without supervision, students will need to monitor each others’ answers carefully, making sure the sounds are blended properly.
