Stand up. Hands up. Pair up with phonograms.

Here’s how we do it.
Each student is given a mini-phonogram card. Students stand up, put a hand up, and pair up (Kagan) with another student by putting their hands together.

The paired students share with each other by showing their cards and saying their phonograms.

THEN the students in the pair SWITCH cards with each other, and immediately put their hands up to create new pairs.

The pair-share cycle begins again.

Set the timer for 3 minutes and see how many different phonograms each student can encounter.

A great occasional replacement for the Johnny Can Spell Flash Cards routine.
