Read and draw single words and connected text.  


Decodable sentences for reading practice plus space to draw a picture. This encourages talking about the words and sentences and this builds meaning and comprehension.


The activities combine reading and spelling and help students to develop phonemic awareness and phonics knowledge.


Build a word – segmenting sounds in words to spell.

Read the word after building – blending sounds and linking the letters to read/say the word.

Phoneme manipulation – the ability to pull words apart into the smallest unit of sound to create new words.

Build vocabulary and comprehension through rich discussion about words, sentences, and picture-making. To draw the pictures, the student has to reread the sentences. Students often need to read a text more than once but can sometimes be reluctant. Drawing together is a scaffold for conversation. A discussion with an adult can fuel vocabulary development and comprehension.
