FREE Phonics Assessment

Vowels, Consonants
Blends, Digraphs, Diphthongs
YIKES what do they all mean AND how do you keep track of what you class has mastered.

It is so important to provide lessons in phonics for the primary child.  Phonics skills help students to spell, decode, read fluently, comprehend, and also help with pronunciation.  
For strong readers in the primary grades phonics skills seem come easily BUT phonics can help them in decoding more difficult vocabulary they come across in their text.  For struggling readers phonics will help them become more fluent as they are able to decode words at a faster pace.
FOR ALL students phonics is a tremendous help with spelling and writing.

My struggle with teaching phonics was...keeping track of the what the students knew.
This assessment packet will be helpful.
It can be used with a parent helper or you can carve out time to assess individual students yourself.
The only thing about you assessing is you can listen and see what difficulty the student is having.
These are quick and easy.  
I hope your will find them helpful.

The packet comes with an individual student record keeping page.
There are then 8 skill assessments:
Onset and Rime
CVC Words
Controlled R
Vowel Digraphs
Vowel Diphthongs

For practice and center activities you will enjoy these.
Each has games and activities your class will enjoy!
