    • Have a scavenger hunt or play “I spy” looking for words that begin with the same first sound.
    • If your child can identify initial sounds in words, try medial and final sounds in simple CVC words.
  11. Segmenting and Blending Sounds

    Slide 11 - Segmenting and Blending Sounds

    • Practice segmenting sounds in 2-4 phoneme words: “Tell me all the sounds you hear in the word ‘lamp’.”
    • Have your child guess the word you are saying by stretching out each sound: “What word am I saying…ssssssss-iiiiiiii-tttttttt?”
    • Use blocks to identity the number of sounds in a word.
    • Play “Head, Shoulders, Knees, & Toes” to tap and count each sound in a word.
