Cambugs Lesson Plan

FREE APP: Cambugs Letter Sounds
Subjects: Reading Fluency, Letter Sounds
Level: K-1


  • Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter/sound correspondences by producing the primary or many of the most frequent sound for each consonant
  • Associate the long and short sounds with common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels
  • Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ

This free app contains letter sounds that teach children the initial phonemes which are the first step in their journey of becoming confident readers.  This app allows parents and children to work together in each lesson through repetition and competitive games. When children learn a new sound, they are awarded a “Cambug” that they can keep and organize in their bug pen.

Lesson Idea

Complete the learning portion of the application and then move to the timed portion to test knowledge on each letter sound. Once a time test is completed, celebrate the success by earning a Cambug.

Extension Idea

If your child completes 3 timed tests, allow him/her the option of creating a Cambug using paper and colors.  If there is time, bring the bug to life by creating it using playdough or other molding material.
