For certain phonics rules or if you are using blending sounds it is fun to create a rule and have a student become that rule.
ex. Write on a sticky note CVCE and have a student wear it proudly on their shirt. Have the rest of the class write a word on the stick that follows that rule and come up and place it on the student. Then have the student parade around the classroom saying the words out loud. It's a fun way to make it hands on and spice up the class a bit.
You can always make it into a game too. Where one student knows the rule and the class has to guess words in order to figure out the phonemic pattern CVC, CVCE, ECE, ect. Or do the opposite where a student faces the white board away from the class with a sticky note on his or her back with a rule. Have students come up and write a word that follows that rule on the board until the one student with the rule on their back guesses it correctly
