My Phonics Activity I Made

Look at my new phonics games I made to help Seth learn his sight word groups!

I adapted this idea from Carissa's Bottle Top Names from 1+1+1=1 blog. She used bottle caps...I knew it would take too long to collect that many...we just don't go through bottles at our house.  But I did have a big bag of clear glass pebbles.  I thought that those could work!

I got name cards on the $1 aisle at Target.  I made a card for each of the different sight word groups and then made a set of alphabet letters using the clear pebbles and a sharpie (you have to be careful and write the letter backwards on the bottom so that when it is viewed through the pebble it is correct...that was a bit tricky).

I laminated the cards to help them last longer.

I think these will work great in practice sessions for our sight word groups.

Seth has already worked with his_at card and had a good time with it!


  1. Cool! I did this (also using glass pebbles; gotta love dollar stores!) using family member names. I think Maddie is still a little young (or just disinterested) right now, so they've been shelved. I can't wait to try them again in the future though. Love the word family idea!

    Here's mine:

  2. Love this idea! I am on the hunt for pre reading and pre writing activities right now.
