Here's a fun way do word drills for phonics. These are five word wheels to be used to practice merging the beginning sounds to the ending sounds of words. The ending sounds featured in these word wheels are the 'gh' and the 'ght' blends as heard in words like 'thought' and 'through'. Each word wheel has colorful illustrations on the front and a complete range of words belonging to a particular group of word families. I find that boys really like this (as well as girls) and the graphics that were chosen for the wheels appeal to both boys and girls.
