This is another twist on traditional sound boxes, and it is MAGICAL, folks! All your students have to do is place color-coded Bingo chips onto each circle on the card. They should progress from green to yellow to red…from left to right. I recommend having them use a green Bingo chip for the initial sound, a yellow chip for the medial sound, and a red chip for the final sound to correlate with the circles on the card. They would place the green chip down and say, /j/, then they would place the yellow chip down and say /o/, then they would say /g/ as they placed the final red chip onto the red circle.
Once your students have placed their Bingo chips onto the card, they should swipe a magnetic wand from left to right to blend the sounds. In this case, they would swipe and say “jog”. It’s so simple, but it’s so much fun! Yes, you could tap them out and swipe with your finger, but this elevates the process, right?!
