Decoding Strategy Cards aligned with Science of Reading


Are you implementing Science of Reading decoding strategies in your classroom?


This collection of decoding strategy cards and matching sound boxes is for you.



How do they work?


  1. Explicitly teach sounding out and blending in your classroom.
  2. Laminate sound boxes and have available when practising word writing.
  3. Use mini cars to indicate sounds (similar to using counters or chips: one car each sound) or attach a car to popsicle sticks for blending.
  4. Choose decoding strategy cards according to your students ability to decode. EG students learning letter sounds will use the ‘Sound it out’ card. Print as full-size posters or reduce down (2:1 page) for student copies.
