This is not my idea and I don't remember where I read it. It was on one of the lists I follow but it worked well. The idea is sound patterning. I wrote a string of letters in a pattern on the blackboard that focused on the letter and sound we were working on and reviewed old ones. This is effective because it strings the sounds together like in reading rather than working on them in isolation.
