String joining

These sheets can be used to practise reading blending the sounds. They can be used in one of two ways:

  1. Copy the sheets and let the children read the words and draw a line to the relevant pictures.
  2. Turn the sheets into String Cards. Colour the pictures, stick the sheets on to card and put a protective transparent covering over it. Make holes at the end of each word and the beginning of each picture. Fix laces to the holes by the words. The children then have to read each word and put the lace through the hole to join it to the correct picture.
