Bean (age 5) has been using the movable alphabet for a while now, focusing on simple phonetic words that follow the consonant-vowel-consonant pattern.
She's doing very well with it, so we are ready to add in some blends as a means of expanding her movable alphabet work. Before this activity, it's a good idea to use Object Box 2- phonetic blends. I borrowed some of the objects from Object Box 2 for this activity (I bought them at a craft store over the summer). I used some poster tack to fix movable alphabet letters to boards. She has always loved sorting, now we are sorting objects to their blends! In the basket, I put equal amounts of objects for each blend so that she could self correct. As she masters these, I'll add in new blends until she has experience with them all.
