What Makes It Tricky?

What Makes It Tricky?
Children need to be explicitly taught how to look for the “sound pictures” in words. For example, in the word “said,” the “ai” is making the sound /e/ as in bed. The “ai” is NOT making the sounds /a/ and /i/. Therefore, the “ai” makes the word “said” tricky. This template is great to do with children each week when they are practicing spelling words at home. This template can also be enlarged and laminated to use in the classroom!

Here is the template!
