Chunks: More than Letter Sounds!

Automaticity with sounds and chunks is critical for reading fluency and comprehension.

Big Sounds Pack The Big Sounds Pack

*The Big Sounds Pack As you go through the steps, practice known sounds and then add new ones as they are introduced. This sounds pack includes the 26 letters plus 73 more letter combinations that need to be learned like th, ch, igh, aw, and many, many more! 
Directions: Practice for just a couple minutes, many times each day. Print sounds back to back so the correct sound along with a target word will be printed on the back.  Keep reviewing the sounds already known, and as new ones are introduced add them to the pack! Being automatic with the sounds for 99 letters and letter combinations is crucial for reading. Use the strategy in Learning New Words or Sounds With Flashcards in order to bring the sounds to automaticity.
