Early Reading Building Block 6: Segmenting

4.5 based on 2 ratings
Just like blending, it's important that young readers can identify individual letter sounds within the context of a word, building on the skill of "sounding out" unfamiliar words. Many children can look at the word "cat" and recognize it based upon familiarity, but to be a successful reader, they must also understand that the word in its entirety is made up of the sounds /c/ /a/ /t/. With this foundation, they'll be able to read many more words, instead of those that they've simply memorized. Here's a selection of decoding games, word-building activities, and consonant blend scavenger hunts that will help your child practice segmenting and other important phonics skills, while building a positive association with reading.
