Phinder is a resource to locate words to help children with beginning reading. The website is here:
In the search box, type a grapheme (a spelling) you would like to teach in the "Search Letter Pattern" box. Then click the one you would like to teach. When you click, a list of phonemes appears in the Step 2 box.
From the list of phonemes (sounds), select the one you want. We chose i-e, and now we want the "long I" words, e.g., bike or white. Click on the phoneme box to select it.
Now that you have put the grapheme and phoneme together, check to make sure this looks right. Then, click "Search For Words."
Abracadabra! Here is a list of words that contains i-e that says the long-I sound!
