LANGUAGE ARTS – “Phoneme Subtraction”

Grades K-2

by Reading on Strawberry Lane

This fun print and play activity will help students master the skills of phonemic deletion/subtraction and reinforce phonemic awareness, which is the ability to hear the smallest unit of sound. Students will read a word and then subtract a sound thus creating a new word. 

Also, this activity targets initial consonant blends and consonant digraphs such as bl, ch, cr, sm, th, sh, and more. There are two game boards (colored/black and white versions) and 92 task cards designed to engage learners. You may use this game board or any game board you have. Or just use the task cards alone, and the student with the most cards at the end wins.





FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Rewriting / Revision Hands-on Activity”

by Laura Torres

7th – 12th Grade


Revision Hands-on Activity


Rewriting / Revision Hands-on Activity. This exercise illustrates to students exactly why revision and rewriting is a necessary part of the writing process. It is helpful to do this activity just before a group critique or feedback session on rough drafts. This is a favorite activity in my first-year college composition class, but I have also used it in classrooms for grades 6 and up with great success.

You could also modify this lesson to work simply as an instruction-writing exercise.
