Pop The Balloon! is a fun and engaging game that is the perfect way to begin your guided reading groups! To play, give each child a card and listen to them as they start at the bottom and work their way to the top to “pop” the balloon! It’s a great way to assess if your students know their sounds. I like to spend up to 5 minutes of the beginning of my reading groups reviewing these sounds as a warm-up before beginning the guided reading lesson.
In this pack, you will find cards for the following blends:
bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl
br, cr, fr, gr, pr, tr
sc, sk, sn, sp, st, sw
You can also put these on binder rings for early finishers to practice on their own as well!
Save 20% and grab the entire bundle to have a year’s worth of phonics segmenting cards!
