I made up a reading flash card. It has all the common beginning and ending sounds and the vowels in the middle.
Every day I have the boys go through two cycles – first with beginning sounds (ball, fall, hall, small) , then with ending sounds (bad, ball, ban, bath, bat). We randomly pick which letters to use for each cycle.

It has really improved their confidence with reading. They have been reluctant to admit they know how to read and this has shown them they know more than they think. And of course, taught them too.

    That is an excellent tool. Once they know how much they actually know, and you can give them things to read using those words, their reading skills will blossom!
