sh ch th Word Sort Activities (Free!)
This activity is for kids who are learning to listen for the consonant blends: sh ch and th. These include various activities to practice the sh ch th words: picture cards and words, tracing pages, seek & color pages, etc.
As the kids were learning to read, I had a wide variety of file folder games and activities that I would rotate into their workboxes. A friend of mine is working with her son and I couldn’t find original file I had used… so I made a new set to share with her (and YOU!!).
And before I go, on Fridays this fall I will have a number of freebies to share with you… So look for Friday Free File Folder Games and Freebies! 🙂 Yay for alliteration!
Enjoy! 🙂 ~Liesl
Here are some other blend materials I’ve made: L-blends such as BL, CL, FL, GL and PL
These packets include worksheets, activities and games!
S-Blend Activities and Games Packet (sc sk sl sm sn sp st and sw)
As many of you know, we used (and loved) All About Spelling (affiliate link) for years! We often supplemented the work we did in this program with spelling games and activities. The spelling book introduced words in a logical step-by-step manner. We loved this program and it worked SO well for all three of my kids. They all made their way through the entire series!
Here’s a post I wrote about the AAS spelling program back when ED was about 8 years old. I’ll put a picture of that in for those who aren’t familiar with AAS. During the first couple of years of the program all of my kids loved using the tiles you see on the board below. This program is really laid out logically and helped ME understand how words are put together and why! Eight thumbs up from the Homeschool Den (me and the 3 kids!!)
The All About Spelling program covers various rules about the Long A, Long I, Long O sounds, vowel teams, etc. but these lessons were spread throughout the series. That is why we used spelling sorts, games and activities to review these rules. (See more about our spelling packet in the next section below.) For example, silent E is introduced in Level 2. The OA and OW vowel teams (for the long o sound) are introduced in Level 3 and the OE vowel team is covered in Level 4.

Below, I’ll also add in links to some of the free materials I made for the kids as they were learning to read. ED really loved the sets of Bob Book worksheets I made for her. These sets are free! 🙂
If your child knows their letter sounds, they may be ready to learn to read. Fun file folder games and activities to help kids learn to read. This post has a dozen or different activities the kids did in preschool. 🙂
Princess Sight Word Game Board–This is a gameboard I made when DD was learning to read. There are links to the (free) princess sight-word cards that we printed out. At the time she and ED loved princesses. 🙂
Visit this post, Teach Your Child to Read, for fun ideas that help your child learn to read as well as some of the readers my kids used… Funny enough, my three kids all gravitated towards different sets! LD really liked the Bob books, DD loved Animal Antics, and ED read through the entire set of Sam readers!!
