Getting Boxed In, Can Be Educational AND Fun!
The 50-word Elkonin Box Packet was such a popular download; I decided to do another packet.
More Elkonin Boxes includes 19 more word templates. I drew these words from the Dolch noun word list.
I also made a sheet of blank Elkonin Box templates, so that students could try their hand at writing a word at the top and then segmenting the word into individual phonemes underneath.
I believe that by providing a template, students are empowered, instead of being frustrated, as my Y5’s often had a difficult time drawing boxes.
This also expedites the exercise and allows children to concentrate on the lesson at hand.

In Introduction To Elkonin Boxes I give detailed instructions of how to guide your students through segmenting simple CVC words and then moving on from there.
This packet includes 3, 4, and 5 Elkonin box blank templates.
Unlike the first two Elkonin Box packets, these do not have pictures, and are boxes that are equal in size.
I also give you a variety of quick and easy ideas of things you can do with the Elkonin boxes,that are sure to not only turn light bulbs on, but get your students excited about segmenting words.

Getting To The Core With A Box
If someone asked me what was the most Googled Word or phrase that was "hit" for my site, I would easily answer Elkonin Boxes.
If you are not familiar with them, they are a huge help in teaching the Common Core State Standard: RF.K2b as they are simply "boxes" that are a visual representation that helps students count, pronounce, blend and segment syllables in spoken words.
The 20-page packet includes 50 word templates + 3, 4, and 5 letter box blank templates, for teachers/parents to use in a variety of ways.
Here you can remind students to separate their words, capitalize the beginning word and use end punctuation, which are Common Core State Standards: RF.1c, L.K2a, and L.K2b.
Any of these Elkonin Box worksheets make great "Word Work" for Daily 5 activities too.
