Loop (follow-me) Cards - Alien (nonsense) Words
The children in my Phonics group absolutely love a Loop (follow-me) card activity, and with the Phonics screening test coming up, I have prepared a version which includes alien words (many of which are from the last couple of year's tests, including their great alien images, plus a few more). This addresses both blending and segmenting skills, as they have to recognise the first word on their card when spoken, and then read the second word correctly for the next child to recognise.

I have a large phonics group, so there are 32 cards, but feel free to reduce for smaller groups. I hope this is useful, and that your classes have as much fun as mine using this activity.
