Phonics Intervention Free Download


Four years ago when I took a leap of faith into an intervention position, I realized how few resources there were out there for reading and phonics intervention groups.  I read SO many books about developmentally appropriate phonics and how to go through the proper foundational steps in order for students to master phonics and not just memorize rules and strategies.  After four years of being in the intervention classroom and/or intervention coordinator for my district, I feel that I can identify and fill phonics gaps for struggling learners.  I’m by no means an expert and have lots more to learn, but I’m excited to share some of my favorite phonics resources with you. CLICK HERE TO GO AHEAD AND DOWNLOAD THE FREE SAMPLE!

So where should you start?

There is a natural order to teaching phonics that we are all probably pretty familiar with.  You might have kindergarteners ready for CVCE words and second graders still working on words with blends.  The range of phonics abilities in your classroom with vary quite a bit from year to year and group to group.  Just remember that they can’t move to the next developmental phonics stage until they have mastered all the prior ones.  Don’t skip and constantly review.

  • Letters
  • Letter Sounds
  • Initial Sounds
  • Ending Sounds
  • Short Vowel Sounds
  • CVC Words
  • Words with Blends
  • CVCE Words
  • CCVCE Words
  • Other Long Vowel Patterns
  • Multisyllable Word Patterns

I’ve worked for months compiling the activities that I have used the past six years in my second grade and intervention classroom to share with all of you.  Every time I started though, I became very overwhelmed and never finished.  However, I’m happy to say that I finally did it!  I am officially ready to share it all with you and even share a huge free download for you to use in your classrooms.

Here’s how to get organized…

Want to purchase the plastic boxes?  Click here to take a look!  I don’t know about you, but organizing all these of pieces is KEY in my classroom.  I need to know where everything is at all times!  Seriously!  Don’t put those cards in the wrong place!  Here’s another look at how I double labeled these boxes so outside and inside both match.

CVC Activities

Most of my CVC activities can also be used to introduce and practice initial sounds, medial sounds, and final sounds.  Then put it all together to practice CVC.  There are more CVC activities to really create a firm foundation and allow extended practice as you review these short vowel sounds as well.  Take a look at the activities that are included in the bundle:

Words with Blends Activities

Gosh darn it!  Who hates teaching /dr/ and /gr/ blends??? I DO!  Kids have such a hard time segmenting to spell these two.  Yes, students tend to be able to read and blend them fine, but segmenting is a whole different story!  I’ve incorporated several of the same type activities to really create a sense of empowerment and confidence with our students.  When students know the expectation and feel confident in the process, they will achieve greater success.  Here are the activities that are included that focus on words with blends.

Long Vowel Patterns

There are only three long vowel pattern activities because very few intervention phonics groups master this skill in the younger grades.  However, they are very important for second graders, so I plan on adding more to this pack very soon to focus on upper phonics.

Editable Printables

With all phonics instruction, you need printables to reinforce and provide additional independent or small group guided practice.  I’ve included 10 different printables that you can use with ANY word list!  YES!  You can add whatever words you need to focus on for that particular week.  Just type and print!  Roll out Playdough words or add a little stamp it out fun!  Type, print, and go!

Phonics Readers and Fluency Cards

Twenty different word family phonics readers and fluency strips have been added to the bundle to ensure that your students are applying those phonics skills!  Make fluency and comprehension a priority while teaching phonics.  Don’t stress!  I’ve made it simple.  Pull activities from your kit to match the readers and the fluency strips can be used at home for additional word practice or as small group warm-ups.

There is so much more to be added to this bundle.  As it grows, you will be notified of all the awesome additions and how you can use these strategies in your classroom.

  • I am so excited to use this in my classroom. I watched the videos and had to have it! I am a Kindergarten teacher moving to 2nd grade next year. I love it even more because I can use it this year with my Kinders AND next year as I move grades!! Thanks so much!

    • Yay!!! If you purchased the bundle, I am uploading phonics readers and fluency strips right now! ❤️ be ready to redownload

  • I love these ideas! Can you email me the link for the alphabet pebbles

    • Hi! Michaels and they are on sale for $15.99 this week

    • Michael’s! They are $15.99 this week too!

      • What is the organizer called? I’m looking but not seeing it.

  • The videos on facebook were wonderful. It let me really see what was included and how to store and use. Thank you for the freeby.

  • Every time I click on the freebie link, it just takes me to the top of the page 🙁

    • So sorry! I think it is working now!

  • Thank you so much for the great product! I purchased the bundle last week and this weekend I got the plastic container along with the boxes at Michael’s for $15.99!!! This is amazing and can’t wait to get everything laminated! One question is – for the skills do you ever have more than 6 students in a group? I find that sometimes with certain skills during our intervention time I might be working with more than 6 and wondering how to use these “boxes” for the certain skill and not having enough materials for the student. For example with the Tic-Tac-Toe game only 4 cards are available. Just wondering how you handle this.
    Many thanks and looking forward to seeing more neat activities!!!

    • I vary my groups but tend to stick with 6 or less. For Tic Tac Toe, two kids are playing the same card with one being o and the other x. So there’s enough for 8. I tried to make sure that there was at least enough materials for 6. However, some would be perfect for less or more (Go Fish). Feel free to email me at if you have other questions. Thanks for your purchase!! I’m uploading two more games tonight so be ready to download sometime tomorrow!

  • This looks great! I also love the way you have it organized. Do the title cards come with the purchased bundle or with the free download? Thanks for sharing!

    • They are with the purchased bundle. I didn’t really know if anyone would be interested in those with the free download or if it would be a waste of ink.

  • Hi~. This is great. I want to try it, but I am not able to find the download. I entered my email, but it is not taking me to it.

  • Beautiful products! I know kids will love them.

  • Is this a good thing to have at home to start little ones reading early? Or is it really more suited for teachers? We clearly wouldn’t need multiples of each card since it would only be the little guy and I.

  • I just purchased the Phonics intervention for pre-k and k…. I have am fixing to purchase the next set but want to make sure I get the right one. You gave a free assessment on your fb page. I gave the assessment to the child he knows all letter A-Z and their sounds. He knew all 5 initial sounds but only knew 1 of each on the vowel sound and ending sounds. Which would explain a few things… Here is my question which bundle will I need to get to help him? On teachers pay teachers I only see the pre-k and K and the independent reader…. is there a 3rd kit that would cover him?

    • Yes he is ready for the bundle for early readers. He will still enjoy the go fish and other games for just initial sounds from the k bundle too. The link to the early readers bundle is

  • Hi, I purchased the bundle in June. I have not used it yet. I am looking forward to implementing the bundle. I am getting ready to print and do not see the cards with the yellow dots. I am new to downloading items from TPT and need help. I have searched and can not find what I thought I purchased. Please help.

  • Hi there. I purchased this bundle and I’m so excited to use it. I was making the CVC Tic-Tac-Toe and noticed that with the short i x’s and o’s there may have been an error. I went back to check but still found I was missing a set for “sit”. I had an extra set of “six” though.

    I watched the video where you were describing the CVC and didn’t see how you had the x’s and o’s stored in the box. Am I missing something? I put each vowel in a snack size baggie but it barely fits in the box. Can you explain that to me?

    I love this product. Thank you for taking the time to create it and share it.

  • How do you attach the covers to the boxes? I wasn’t sure if you used packing tape or something else!

    • I laminate the covers and then use high temp hot glue to attach them.

  • Hello! I just bought your kit and am having such a fun time putting it together — I can’t wait to get started using it in my classroom! I was wondering if you have a blog post or instructions about how you organized the early readers! I love them, but wasn’t sure if they are a whole separate kit. Do you keep the readers and fluency cards in a separate organizer together? Thank you for this amazing resource!

    • Also, I was wondering what you use the cvc picture cards and words with blends picture cards for … I can’t find any info about them in the packet! Thank you again!

      • I use the cards for word sorts. For example, we can do word families and rhyming words. Find all the words that rhyme with run. Or find all of the short o words.

    • I use an index card holder to organize my readers. Some like to buy the small boxes separately for around $2 for their books too. I punch a hole punch and o ring to organize my fluency strips. It keeps them all together and in order. Hope this helps. Feel free to email me at

  • Looks awesome!!! I would love a freebie sample, I teach kindergarten!

  • I am a volunteer teacher of deaf children. I have retired but am helping children with remedial reading. This looks so exciting and I am sure it will be useful. I live in South Africa. How do I get the bundle?

  • when I click on freebie it asks me to put my first name and email., then says thanks all done, but no link to download.

    • Check your email. You should receive a link.

  • hi there, when I click on freebie it asks me to put my first name and email., then says thanks all done, but no link to download.then i checked my email and didn’t get anything there either. i also went on the TPT website and the website won’t open. i don’t know what else to do, i would love to us this for my daughter 😀

  • I am unable to download the free sample. I put in my name and email and all I get is a page saying thank you but with no link to the pages or ability to download the sample.

  • I just bought multiple bundles that you have put together and I don’t think I have ever been this excited to start the school year with all of these activities that can become independent stations for my students! I went and bought the storage containers that you used and it make it so much easier! I do have a questions about how you would recommend how to store some of the activities because they do not fit into the containers. How do you store the CVC picture word cards, words with blends picture cards, the phonics readers and the fluency strips? I bought an extra container (the photo container with 16 boxes) to use as over flow of activities so I do not have to put all of the materials in the containers. Therefore the students won’t be overwhelmed by the amount of materials in one activity container and I can still stay very organized. Please let me know what your thoughts are 🙂

    • I have a few extra shoeboxes in my classroom to toss extra pieces in so that kiddos don’t get overwhelmed. For the readers, I use an index card holder. I put the fluency strips on o-RIngs and hang up. I sure hope this helps you! Enjoy and thank you for your sweet message! We’ve used so many of the activities in the first three weeks already.

  • I have filled out the email and I have not received the download. Please let me know what else I need to do to make this work. I work as a reading teacher and a dyslexic pull out teacher and this would be a great aid, but it just keeps asking for my email address and then when I go to my email, I don’t have anything from you to download. Thank you for your help.

  • I am overwhelmed at all of my choices. I teach 3rd grade, but have gen ed students that ranger from letter sounds all the way to multi-syllable words. Which bundle would I get what I need most to work with my kiddos in a small intervention group?

  • This is amazing! I can’t wait to use it with my niece who is struggling with cvc words! Thank you for making it available free!!!

  • Hi There! I am trying to download the free phonics intervention pack but it doesn’t seem to be working properly.

  • Hello I am having difficulty downloading the free phonics intervention pack. Can you help me please?

  • I’ve entered my email address and it thanks me, which is nice, but does not give me the free download.

  • Found the download! Can’t wait to try it. Thank you!

  • Entered my email address to receive the free download and was not able to get the free download.

  • I typed in email address and clicked download. It says thank you but I didn’t get the download.

  • I purchased this 2-3 years ago. I was wondering if you had any idea on how I could use this as a digital activity? I am a special education teacher teaching students virtually this trimester. I would love to be able to use this with them.

  • I am currently teaching phonics to K students and try and make it as fun as possible. The laminator has been my bestie. These are great and I am so thankful for the videos. That helps a lot.
