Blending Sliders


Use this hands-on activity to support students in learning to segment sounds in words and then blend them together. Students tap the coloured dots as they say each sound and then run their finger along the arrow as they say the word.


Add some extra fun to this activity by stringing a green, blue and pink bead onto a pipecleaner – students can then move or touch each bead as they say each sound and then push them together as they say the word.


This set includes 140 cards using CVC words with a range of short vowel sounds. Each card also includes a picture of the word to support students in completing this activity independently.
