I wanted to share this easy and fun activity that ALuv and I did to review his blends, digraphs, short vowels; not to mention blending phonemes together to make words. He enjoyed this so much that he asked to play again and again. I’m planning on changing up my dice* so we can. 🙂
- 1st dice: b, sh, ch, st, f, & m
- 2nd dice: a, e, i, o, u, & another u
- 3rd dice: t, ll, p, d, n, & g
*Make sure you label each die: 1, 2, & 3!
He rolled each die individually and placed them in their proper boxes at the top of this sheet:
Then, he blended the sounds together and wrote the word either in the “real word” or “nonsense word” category. He played until one column was completely filled.
Want to give it a try? This activity came from Flordia’s Center for Reading Research. (pgs. 13-17) I used the blank dice template (pg. 37) to create my own.

I like the dice. Nice way to make it more interactive. I pinned it to our boards. http://pinterest.com/qltyclassrooms/
Thanks, Chris. He’s already been asking when we’ll do this one again. 🙂 I think I’ll stick stickers over top of the original to change it up.
