I like to use color coded manipulatives, such as these CVC Sliders, to help students easily segment and blend words. First, we touch each colored dot and say each sound. Then, we move a bead on our CVC slider as we say each phoneme. Green is for the beginning sound, yellow is for the middle sound, and red is for the ending sound. Color coding helps us easily identify the beginning, middle, and ending sounds, as well as helps with left-to-right directionality! Visual and kinesthetic learning… helping to get the job done!
