How to Use Phoneme Segmentation Flashcards

Children select a card and segment each sound in the word as they tap each black dot on the card, e.g., /c/ /a/ /t/. Afterward, they blend all the sounds back together as they move their finger from left to right, e.g., cat. The dashes noted on the last 4 sets of cards are digraphs, or two consonants that stand together to represent a single sound

These are great to use with your students in guided reading groups!

This resource is available to download in Microsoft Word so that you can use your own words to suit your students’ levels. The dots and dashes are individual images so can be copied and pasted where ever you may need in the document.

Note: The Microsoft Word documents do not contain all of the words that the PDF documents contain.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or Word version as well as color-coded or black and white.
