1.       The teacher shows a completed word slider to the class.
2.       The teacher explains how to make the word slider:

  •  Make three 2cm cuts on the paper plate leave 1 cm between each slit horizontally and 4cm vertically. 
  •  Cut three 2cm paper strips, making marks every 4 cm
  •  Write phonemes you would like to revise writing initial, middle and final sounds on different strips to form words.
  •  Insert the paper strips into the slits.

3.       The teacher demonstrates the activity:

  •  Pick a word card
  •  Segment and blend the word
  • use the word slider to form the same word

4.       Pupils work in pair and receive one word slider and matching set of word cards.
5.       Pupil A picks a word card and blends and segments the word on it.
6.       Pupil B uses the word slider to form the word. When ready, he segments and blends the word again.
7.       Pupil B shows pupil A the answer to compare.

 

Follow Up:

The teacher says a word; the pupils work in pairs and form it using the word slider. The teacher checks the answers.

Variations:

Two pupils form a word using the word slider and then show it to another pair to read aloud (blend and segment).

Tips:

Draw the instructions to make the word slider (with measurements) on the blackboard for pupils to refer to while making their word sliders.
