I posted this freebie several weeks ago on Life in First Grade's facebook page, but I never shared it here for those of you non facebookers. I use this strategy for my strugglers who have trouble blending words . The student will place a letter title above each candle and say the sound. Once all the letters have been placed on the candles, the student will say each sound together and "blow out the candles" by saying the word. It just creates a good visual for those kids who are struggling with blending.
