Blending and Segmenting Activitity

When beginning readers sound out words, they slowly say each sound in a word (c-a-t), and then say the sounds quickly together to "read" the word (cat). In reading, teachers call this blending because sounds are being blended together. Blending (combining sounds) and segmenting (separating sounds) are skills that are necessary for learning to read.

Below is one of blending and segmenting activity that I've carried out in the classroom. Love to share it with you all here.
Step 1  : Pupils are divided into 5 groups.

Step 2 : Each group is given sets of phoneme cards and a picture.

Step 3 : Pupils hang the phoneme cards around their necks and rearrange them
            to form word that stressing on the phoneme /z/.

Step 4 : Pupils blend and say the word together.

SETS OF PHONEME CARD AND PICTURE
