Elkonin Box Templates

Are you looking for something to help you teach blends and phonemes or Common Core State Standard: RF. K2b?

 Have you tried Elkonin Boxes
  • Elkonin boxes can be used to teach phonemic awareness by having students listen for individual sounds and marking where they hear them in the boxes.
  • They are a visual representation that help students count, pronounce, blend and segment syllables in spoken words.
  • Each box in an Elkonin box card represents one phoneme, or sound. 
  • Elkonin boxes are a physical segmentation of words into phonemes. 

  • This 20-page packet includes: 
    50 word templates + 3, 4 and 5 letter box blank templates, for you to use in a variety of ways, + a writing master where students are given a word to break down and then use that word in a sentence.
    Remind students to use spaces between words, capitalize the 1st word, and use end punctuation, and you've covered 3 more state standards! (RF.1c, L.K2a, and L.K2b.)
