A SELECTION OF ACTIVITIES SUGGESTED BY THE PHONICS MODULAR FLIP CHART
Letter and sound identification
Review the names of the letters by flipping through them in alphabetical order and having students name the letters. Then have volunteers flip through the cards to find specific letters that you name. A similar activity can be carried out using the sound alphabet.
Randomly flip through the letters and have the children race to find the matching letter on their phoneme fans and say the letter name.
Blending and segmenting phonemes
Snap together the modules needed to make a simple short vowel word, for example big. Read the word aloud, blending the phonemes. Ask children how many sounds they hear in the word. Break the word apart to illustrate the three phonemes that make up the word. Have the children say the sound made by each individual letter, then snap the modules back together again to make the word big
Who Has It? (Game)
Write words on index cards, making sure none of the words are the same, and distribute them to your students. Create one of the words on your flipchart, but don't show it to the students. Say that one of them has the "secret word", then quiz them to find out who has it: "Who has the word that starts with..?" "Who has the word that ends with..?" etc. Every child qualifying stands up, and when a child no longer qualifies they sit down. Finally ask "Who has the word that starts with..., ends with ... and has the middle letter...?" Only one student should remain standing: have them come out and compare his or her with the flip chart.
Draw simple oval links in a chain on the board. Writ e a simple word like PAT as the first link. Display that word using the flip chart. Ask a volunteer to come up and change a letter in the display to make a new word, such a s PET, and write it in the next link. Continue the word chain, having students use the flip chart to create new words, and recording the results in the links on the board.
