More About This Resource

These FREE science of reading-aligned word building activities give kindergarten, first and second-grade students explicit and systematic phonics skills practice!   This resource includes NO PREP DIGITAL activities and PRINTABLE word building worksheets.

PRINTABLE ACTIVITIES: Students will build & write up to 10 words with the included grapheme cards. Students can then reread the words three times to practice fluency.

DIGITAL ACTIVITIES: Students will listen to the *AUDIO directions (FROM ME!) and then build words in a specified sequence. Each new word only varies by one sound spelling from the previous word. For example, “Change one sound in the word pat to build the word pan”. Students press the audio button to hear me state the word to build, blend the phonemes of the word, say the word again, and use it in a sentence to develop vocabulary.


Students will love that these phonics word building activities are interactive and self-checking for immediate feedback! This resource includes both NO PREP DIGITAL activities and PRINTABLE word building worksheets.

The digital lessons have been PRELOADED for you, with 1 click add them to your Seesaw library or Google Drive, then assign to your students!


These digital word building activities are dependent on the audio files. I will essentially be instructing your students throughout the word building routine.

Some school districts block audio files they do not own. If you’ve had difficulty with audio on other Google resources, there is a chance that the audio on this resource will be blocked by your district too. Please download this free trial as a way to check that the audio will work for you.

    I look forward to using this resource with my students. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I will not be using the online resource at this time, I do love all the phonics practice that my students will have to help them strengthen their reading.
