A Bowl of Little Words



One effective strategy to improve Reading Fluency is 'sounding out words'. The child says each sound in a word and then say the word. One of best ways to start practicing the 'sounding out' strategy is by using CVC (Consonant Vowel Consonant) or three letter words. There are many ways to present CVC words to the students, being flashcards the classic one. However I created the "Bowl of Little Words" and the students were very motivated to use it. To make this game I used glass pebbles and pictures cut out from a phonics workbook answer key.
