The science of reading shows that mapping words can strengthen phoneme-grapheme associations to create strong readers! Through this resource, students connect the speech sounds (phonemes) of a word to the letters or letter combinations (graphemes). This process utilizes the oral language processing part of a student’s brain to help them permanently store words into their sight word memory.
Included in this download are interactive digital slides for over 130 blend and digraph words. These interactive slides are perfect for independent student practice or center work. Students will see a picture of the word to build meaning, hear an audio recording of the word, map the phonemes (sounds) they hear, and then spell the word using graphemes.
This resource also includes printable phoneme-grapheme association mapping boards and word image cards for guided group instruction. Use these printables to complete the same word mapping routine with your students!
