Guided Reading Phonics Posters

Hello!  It's Reagan from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits.  Here is a little repost from a couple weeks ago!

As a teacher of reading we come to discover that there are some habits that separate skilled readers from those that struggle.


Struggling Readers Tend To:
  • Rely on context clues and guessing
  • Skip difficult sections of text
  • Read slowly and with great difficulty
  • Focus on decoding and not comprehension
  • Lack self-monitoring
Confident Readers Tend To:
  • Process words automatically and rapidly
  • Look for known chunks in unfamiliar text
  • Use context to confirm pronunciation and meaning
Because the expectations for young students learning to read have increased tremendously year after year, it becomes overwhelming for many of our students to keep up with the fast pace of introducing new sound/spellings week after week.  Because we must cover so many different phonics patterns, we can lose those little strugglers to confusion and over-saturation of new material.

I noticed that when my strugglers were not able to recall learned sounds from previous weeks, I was having to dig out our previous word work activities or recreate them quickly with a little whiteboard to support that reader.  I wanted to have something I could easily point to and remind/review as needed.

Phonics instruction provided in a meaningful
context provides multiple anchors to help
students learn about words: meaning,
spelling, and sound


  Being consistent with sound boxes can really make an impact on your struggling readers.  This gives them a concrete understanding of sounds and the letters that make them.  It can be eye opening to see how your students react and push sounds into the boxes. 

I had to edit this video down to just 42 seconds from almost 4 minutes in order to get it to upload, so this is not a complete picture of how we manipulate the sounds.

Students gain an understanding of digraphs, trigraphs, beginning, medial, and ending sounds!

Anything can be used for sound boxes!  Changing it up provides novelty which makes for eager little learners!  #milklids  #erasers  #googlyeyes  #poms  #seasonalitems 


Focus on one particular group of sounds or build a guided reading anchor wall.

 In protective sleeves students can highlight, circle, or cover certain parts of the word to further explore the sounds and pattern.

I made two versions of each sound.  One that just anchors the sound to a word, and one that helps provide word examples of that same pattern.


In order to keep the pages from getting worn, I decided to place them in sheet protectors.  Plastic folders or little binders are the perfect place for creating a little review reading book.

The inspiration for phonics posters came from our flipping for phonics book sets.  My students LOVE to read these all.the.time.  I use them for a warm up during guided reading.  Students also put them int their book boxes and read them to anyone that is willing to listen.

I also just uploaded these short vowel tracers!  Now my students can work on handwriting while I target their phonics pattern!    My reason for creating these is for RTI practice as well as for a fast finisher activity.  My groups begged me to put them in the writing center, but I decided to use them for a reward for finishing work.

I also completed the blends and digraph set of posters and tracers too!
