Level A

Build It

Build It focuses on word-level work through chaining and sound blending. These skills connect phonemic awareness to phonics to read words accurately and automatically.

In part one of Build It, the user builds a series of words by changing a single sound in a word. This is called word chaining.

The user listens to a word and builds the word using the tiles.

The next word is built based on a single sound change.

In the second part of Build It, the user listens to a series of sounds and blends them to identify the written representation of the sounds.

Build It | Blend

Users listen to, repeat, and blend the sounds to create a word. Then they select the blended word from the choice of word tiles.

This is a timed activity to encourage both accuracy and automaticity.

Users have two tries to select the correct word. Sortegories indicates the correct answer in green.
