Form words by blending onsets and rimes using a Google Interactive Onset-Rime Clip Card Center.
Have your students take apart and put together onsets and rimes with a Google Interactive set of Onset-Rime Clip Cards. The onset is the part of a single-syllable word before the vowel. The rime is the end part of a word, including the vowel and the following letters.
Applying this learned reading skill is similar to following a roadmap—following the route one sound (phoneme) at a time until you reach the endpoint.
Teaching onset and rime becomes playtime with our Onset and Rime Interactive Clip Cards, in which students build words using onsets and rimes.
Master Reading through Play with Onsets and Rimes
This resource can be used as a reading center activity for fast finishers, with your guided reading group, or as a whole class activity to practice forming words by blending onsets and rimes.
To use, assign the activity in Google Classroom or another LMS. Students will open the file in edit mode. Students will click and drag icons to identify the rimes needed to make complete words.
Turn This Activity into Even More Onset and Rime Games!
We think you’ll like these extra opportunities for blending onsets and rimes.
Students can practice their word families. Have students take a sheet of paper and write other words that use the same rhyme as a word on the cards.
Onset-Rime Awareness Scaffolding & Extension Tips
Once students have built all of the words, encourage them to add them to a personal word wall or student dictionary, use them in sentences, or reset the slides and play again!
Invite students to use a visual reminder such as an onset & rime anchor chart or an alphabet chart to sound out difficult words.
