Matching phonemes to graphemes can be as easy as playing a game of Bingo. Little learners build a strong understanding of medial sounds, vowels, and letter sound correspondence while playing Bingo. Bingo cards and picture cards are included; you just need to print and laminate the amount you need.
Students paint their ABC's. In this hands-on literacy lesson, students make pictures from letter prints after being introduced to the alphabet through a picture book. Lesson includes a take-home activity and literacy curriculum connection.
Little learners time each other as they each work through a sheet of all 26 letters of the alphabet. They test each other to see how many letter sounds they can identify in 1 minute. Letter sheets and data collection sheets are included.
Students visually represent information by using magnetic letters of the alphabet and understand and use technical vocabulary. They are able to repeat the name of the letters and sing the "Alphabet Song". They show what they have learned by playing bingo.
New! Insects A-Z!
Alphabet insects! Who has ever heard of such a thing? Get ready because your class is going to research insects that start with a specific letter of the alphabet. In small groups, they'll use the Internet and reference texts to locate common insects that begin with the assigned letter. Then they are challenged with the task of using insect behavior and physical characteristics to classify all the buggy names they collected during research. This is a great lesson that incorporates several key skill sets and looks like a lot of fun.
Get creative with phonics by having kids create a letter-sound mobile! Using a hanger, hole punch, string, and the provided image and letter cards, learners practice matching medial sounds to their corresponding vowels. Students attach the vowels to the hanger (three are pictured, but you can probably fit all five) with string and then proceed to attach each image below its medial sound letter. There are five images for each vowel, so keep in mind this may get hectic if strings become entangled, kids can't tie knots, etc. Consider using a circular wire if possible.
Students create a computer page of their own name in both upper and lower case letters to review the order of letters in the alphabet. They must scroll through the alphabet using an alphabet template on Kidpix then find the letters for their first and last name.
Pupils identify letters in the alphabet and pronounce them phonetically correct.
Students participate in an activity to identify words with specific letter sounds or letter combinations. In this letter sound/letter combination lesson, students focus on three-letter sounds then identify words in a sound hunt involving an age appropriate magazine, book or newspaper. Students make a list of the words they have found then work as a class to define them.
Help readers explore initial letter sounds. They will choose a letter of the alphabet and create a page for a classroom "ABC" book. They will write down various words that begin with their assigned letter and draw a picture to go in the class book. Furthermore, the book can be created in a digital format so that every family can have a copy. Various digital tools are recommended.
Students practice the alphabet. In this ABC lesson, students read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and identify the letters of the alphabet in the story. Students then make ABC prints using sponges.
Students explore the alphabet. In this language arts lesson plan, students develop their fine motor skills as they participate in activities that require them to identify the letters of the alphabet.
Students act out words that start with each letter of the alphabet. In this alphabet lesson plan, students look at cards with words and act it out for the class and the class guesses the word based on the letter they know it starts with.
In this alphabet learning exercise, students click on the letters of the alphabet in order from a to z to reveal the hidden picture. Students complete 4 pictures.
The main exercise here has to do with initial, medial, and final sound correspondence. Youngsters practice decomposing word sounds using image cards and a template (both provided). They cut out ten 3-letter images and sound each out, gluing them alongside each almost-complete name on the worksheet...but their job is not yet done! Each word is missing one of the sounds, and they fill in the corresponding letter according to the sound they hear. There are dozens more images associated with these three sound categories; use your own creativity to put them to use!
Students experience and study how to utilize the alphabet and letter sounds to create an alphabet PowerPoint Presentation. They prepare each slide with a letter of the alphabet, a sentence expressing that letter and the sound that corresponds to that letter.
Students practice writing with alliteration, repeating the same letter sound at the beginning of two or more words in a sentence; students also review of adjectives, verbs, and adverbs while creating an alphabet book.
Students read Thank You for the Thistle and understand what alliteration is. In this alliteration lesson, students write sentences using alliteration. Students choose a letter of the alphabet and the class writes an alphabet book of alliteration examples.
Phonics lesson plans using music for kindergarten through first grade can make learning about letter sounds more fun.
What word is it? Build fluency with sight words using this sounding out strategy which enforces silent reading techniques. There are more than enough words included here on index card templates, but you can use this idea with any set your class is mastering. Have them read one word at a time; as you point to each letter instruct scholars not to speak as they sound them out, mouthing the letter sounds. They say the word only once you have prompted them. Make this more complex by instructing readers to sound out the words without moving their lips. Check out the activity log for an assessment record.
