Let’s take a look at Unit 3 in action:

Ch Digraph Words

Ch and th digraphs can be tricky for students to learn. Therefore, Unit 3 is packed with plenty of fun ways for students to practice, practice, practice!

Phonics Posters– Each unit comes ready with phonics posters that explain the new phonics skill! Hang these posters on your wall and add to them each new unit! Everyone will be amazed at what they learn as the units progress!

Segmenting and blending cards break up each phonics sound so students can isolate and blend new words!

Sound box cards- Add magnetic letters to form new words! You notice the the digraphs sounds are grouped as one box. This helps students understand and recognize that digraph is two letters that make one sound.

Spin and Build a Digraph Word! Ready2Read incorporates a lot of interactive learning…which most kids love! Just spin the spinner and add the ending sound. Read the new ch digraph word! Simple but highly effective!

Say and Sort! Say the name of the picture and sort to the correct column.

Simple Digraphs Sentences– Now students are moving onto some fluency activities while incorporating both phonics and sight words.

Beginning and Ending Digraphs– Visual images help solidify new phonics sounds. This fun and cute Ch sort had decodable letters that students can read based on pervious taught Ready2Read lessons.

Ending Digraphs Spin and Build– Spin the make a new word that ends with the ch digraph!

Identify the Word– Students look at the picture and circles the correct word that matches.

Th Digraph

Th Digraphs are also introduced in this unit. Students will work with both beginning and ending th digraphs.

Th Song and Poster– also included to help retain their new phonics skill!

I like to keep learning fun and fresh by implementing some novelties. In the picture below, I used some colored sand and magnetic letters. Three ways of learning are used in this picture: 1. segment and blend cards 2. magnetic letters to build the new word 3. colored sand to write the word. All of these learning materials play an important role in synthesizing new phonics concepts.

Spin and Build a new word!

Say and Sort– Th and Not a TH Digraph sorting practice.

Fluency practice– matching a sentence to the correct picture.

Beginning or Ending– Sorting new words with a visual reminder!

Sight Word Centers

Not only do phonics play a crucial component in learning how to read, but sight words also play an equally important role! In Level 2 Unit 3 we are focusing on the following 6 sight words: into, but, so, pretty, what, and ran.

Sight Word Search– Each sight word will have their own word search with some sentence practice.

Go Fish for Sight Words– A quick game of Go Fish also helps make practicing those sight words FUN! Learning becomes a game!

Fluency Practice– Read the simple sentences that incorporates the targeted phonics skill and the unit sight words.

Mixed Review

Once students have practiced ch and th digraphs and the 6 new sight words, it’s time to practice mixed review.

Digraph Roll and Read– Roll the die, read the word in that column, and color the circle. Continue to roll, read and color until all bubbles have been colored it. This one sheet of practice covered 30 targeted phonics skill words! So much practice packed into one page of Ready2Read!

Ice Cream Digraphs– Cut and paste the correct picture to each cone, listening for the ch or th sound in each picture.

Read and Color– Ready2Read also included a mixed review of skills to maximize the learning in this unit.

Mixed Review Fluency Sentences– These provide practice with a mixed review of words.

Digraph Board Games– Another FUN game! Each player flips over a card and reads the word. Next, they find the picture that matches their word on the game board and covers it with their marker.

Review Word Lists– Show what you know with these words lists! This is where students are able to see how much they learned. This is such a confidence booster! The list include words what I have learned and challenging word lists. The challenging word lists combine phonics skills that have been taught in previous lesson of Ready2Read.
