Product Description

Nonsense words are words that aren’t real. I’ve read some of the rationale on the internet for using nonsense words. One of the things I found is that teachers are using nonsense words as way to practice and assess the phonics skills that they have taught. One site said mentioned that using nonsense words takes the pressure off of figuring out the meaning. Another rationale is that nonsense words helps the students with syllabication of longer words. When they get to the longer words with multiple syllables, they will have an easier time decoding them if they are fluent in nonsense words. The DIBELS assessment (which our district uses) includes assessments for nonsense words … especially in the lower grades.

Nonsense Words (Consonant blends)
Nonsense Words from Nita Marie's Classroom Creations

I’m posting more words that don’t make any sense. Nonsense words are words that aren’t real. I’ve read some of the rationale on the internet for using nonsense words. One of the things I found is that teachers are using nonsense words as way to practice and assess the phonics skills that they have taught. One site said mentioned that using nonsense words takes the pressure off of figuring out the meaning. Another rationale is that nonsense words helps the students with syllabication of longer words. When they get to the longer words with multiple syllables, they will have an easier time decoding them if they are fluent in nonsense words. The DIBELS assessment (which our district uses) includes assessments for nonsense words … especially in the lower grades.

One of the disadvantages of nonsense words is that it takes a while to make them up. So I did that for you. In this packet I have included 60 words with the following consonant blends: gr, tr, cr, st, sk, cl, pl, lk, sp, br, bl,lt,fr, dr, and gl. I have tried to include short and long vowel (vce) sounds along with a variety of other letters.

Our school administrators want our students practicing nonsense words in our Intervention Classes, so I have already posted other nonsense word packets. I also plan on making additional packets for other letter and syllable patterns. Please follow me to stay updated.

Thanks,
Nita Marie

I have been an  elementary school teacher for 16 years!  I'm certified to teach 1st through 8th grade.  Most of my teaching career has been teaching lower elementary.  The last 8 or 9 have been in 2nd grade. This past year, I earned a Technology Facilitator Add On to my teaching certificate.

Seveal years ago, I began selling some of my the items I make for my classroom. I'm totally excited to be trying Educents!  I can't wait to see how it works out.
