The Word Flipper pictured in this post comes from All About Reading Level 2, Lesson 8. In this lesson, the student learns how to read words with three-letter blends such as S-C-R as in scrap. After practicing the concept with letter tiles, we use the Word Flipper to provide even more practice and to build fluency. They can be used again and again to review and reinforce previously learned rules and patterns.
