How Many Sounds?

Hello everybody. Lately at my schools I've been working with groups and trying get more bang for my buck. Many of the kids are falling short when it comes to reading so I've been doing reading and phonological awareness activities in my groups to help give the kids a boost.

Phonological awareness seems to be a big issue & many of the children I work with are struggling readers in grades 2, 3 & 4. I need activities that are going to promote phonological awareness skills but are also going to be age-appropriate and not too simple. I made an activity package that is a very simple for teachers to use but useful and fun for kids. I use this pack in speech therapy with my students with phono goals and in reading groups.

How Many Sounds is a very simple package to use. All you do is print and cut. 
How to play: First you lay all the dice out on the table and place the cards face down. Each child chooses a card, counts the number sounds in the word then places it on the corresponding dice.
For example- she: sh- ee 2 sounds.

You can modify it too. If your children are having difficulty you can only use the 2, 3, & 4 word sounds. 
This package also includes diagraphs. If the students you are working with have a hard time with digraphs this pack has many examples  for a little extra practice.

Let me know what product(s) you like and use for struggling readers.
