Spot it and Sort it 

Spot it and sort it organisers.  Use after explicit instruction for guided decoding practice.

Playing games helps to consolidate previous learning. All children need lots of exposure to vowel spellings to develop fluent decoding. Games don’t replace reading books. All children should be reading several books daily. But if a child struggles to read and needs lots of extra practice, blending to read games can help motivation and engagement. Use the sheets to review past sounds and spellings before moving on to spelling or sentence instruction.
