A typical literacy lesson will go like this (without saying the words in italic font, that is just for the teacher’s knowledge):

  • Segmenting – Roll the ball under each bridge and say the sound.
  • Blending – Now say the word, putting all the sounds together. What does the sounds on the bridges spell all together? m-a-t, mat.
  • Phoneme manipulation – Teacher changes a letter on a bridge. What does it say now? (You could change beginning, middle or ending sounds.) Roll the ball through the bridge that changed sounds.
  • Phoneme deletion – Take away a bridge/sound. What does the word say now? (Same as above, you can work on deletion of beginning, middle or ending sounds depending on the child’s needs.)
