Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types. Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!
DIY wooden block phonics game This is a wonderful activity for teaching reading. It's visual and tactile. If your students are having trouble with word families, then that student needs more practice breaking each individual sound apart. This works beautifully for that.
Roll and Read Phonics Literacy Stations for the entire year!! THREE levels (below level, on level, above level) - so easy to differentiate! & they all come with sound in "helper red" or with the words all black. There's also a version with sentences! AMAZING
