Some games that you can play with your child are:


Guess-the-word game

This activity is an example of how to teach students to blend and identify a word that is stretched out into its basic sound elements..

Materials needed: Picture cards of objects that students are likely to recognize such as: sun, bell, fan, flag, snake, tree, book, cup, clock, plane

Activity: Place a small number of picture cards in front of children. Tell them you are going to say a word using "Snail Talk" a slow way of saying words (e.g., /fffffllllaaaag/). They have to look at the pictures and guess the word you are saying.

Robot talk

Talking in "Robot Talk," students hear segmented sounds and put them together (blend them) into words.

Sound blending using songs

Activity is to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands."

If you think you know this word, shout it out! 

If you think you know this word, shout it out! 

If you think you know this word,
Then tell me what you've heard,

If you think you know this word, shout it out!

After singing, say a segmented word such as /k/ /a/ /t/ and students provide the blended word "cat."
