A Tool for Teaching Phoneme Segmentation

The bead slide is my all-time favorite tool for teaching phoneme segmentation.  It's easy to make and very effective for teaching children to segment the sounds in words.  Simply say a word and have the students move a bead for each sound they hear in the word.  The problem is sometimes I just can't quickly come up with 2-, 3- and 4- phoneme words.  So to solve this little issue I created a simple cheat sheet.
