Fluency: Letter sound correspondence
While this memory game activity doesn't include the necessary cards, it's still a great way to engage little ones in letter sound recognition. Provide a set of images and letter cards, lay them face down (like memory), they flip the cards over and attempt to see if the letter matches the first sound of their image card. They are timed while they do this, in order to build accuracy and fluency.
Letter Sound Match
Matching letters to letter sounds can be fun and builds strong phonemic awareness. Kindergarteners take turns matching initial, medial, and final phonemes, to individual graphemes. They pick a card, say its name, then find the letter that makes that sound. If the card is a monkey, then the child finds the letter m, matching the grapheme to the initial phoneme in the word.
Final Letter Sounds
Bat or ball? Do your emerging readers need practice using the final sound to help them figure out a word? This plan not only details the teacher preparation needed, but also provides examples, guided and independent practice, and checks for understanding.
Heroes in History - ABC Book
Youngsters research information about people in history that we recognize as heroes. They write short biographies about their assigned heroes, and create an ABC book. This is an ambitious project becausev26 people must be chosen and written about! A worthwhile project that reaches learners across many grade levels.
First graders are introduced to the letters in the alphabet and how to correctly pronounce them. As a class, they identify the differences between the different letters and are read a story. They complete a Venn Diagram using all 26 letters to see how they are the same and different. To end the lesson, they participate in a game with each letter and practicing sorting them.
Toot & Puddle: Puddle's ABC Lesson Plan
Students familiarize themselves with the sounds of the alphabet by creating an alphabet book. In this early childhood language arts lesson, students identify uppercase and lowercase letters, recognize sounds, and review the order of the letters of the alphabet.
ABCs of Endangered Species
Students create an ABC Book of Endangered Animals that includes locator maps, "fast facts," and explanations about why those animals are endangered.
Letter Sound Accuracy
Students explore language arts by participating in a letter identification activity. In this spelling lesson, students identify the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Students collaborate in small groups and utilize large letter cards to complete a random letter pronunciation game.
Letter Sound Accuracy, Egg Carton Game
Students explore phonetics by participating in a word sound game. In this letter identification activity, students review the letters of the alphabet and discuss the sound each one makes. Students view a video tutorial of an egg carton letter game which they play among their classmates.
Letter Sound Accuracy, You're a Liar!
Students explore language arts by participating in a word pronunciation activity. For this alphabet identification lesson, students utilize a deck of flash cards which have the letters of the alphabet written on them and must be placed in the correct order. Students participate in a game where they must determine if a student has a specific card or is lying about it.
The Alphabet Game
Students spell words using cards with each letter of the alphabet on them. For this alphabet lesson plan, students word in 2 teams and get points for the first team to spell the word correctly.
Letter Sound Accuracy, Musical Chairs
Students explore word structure by participating in a game of musical chairs. In this phonics lesson, students discuss the letters of the alphabet and identify words that begin with each letter and the sounds they make. Students collaborate in a group to play a game of musical chairs while saying words out loud based on a specific letter.
Listening to Letter Sounds
Students review the sounds and letters that coorespond to them. Using a voice recorder, they say the sounds and letters being taught at that given time. They use the recorded messages to complete an activity using the letters and sounds.
All letters of the alphabet in one sentence
In this sentence tracing worksheet, students trace the sentence containing all letters of the alphabet. Students trace the sentence 5 times and write it 1 time.
Letter Sound Accuracy, Sound Spaghetti
Students pronounce letter sounds. In this beginning phonics lesson, students play a "Spaghetti" game in which they choose a strip of paper with three isolated letters, say each sound, and "eat" (crumple) the spaghetti.
Make letter-sound correspondence a game using this activity idea. Youngsters work in pairs to drill and practice alphabet sounds, keeping track of their progress on a chart (provided). Working one at a time, each partner flips letter cards, saying the sound and letter. If they get it correct, it goes in the YES pile. If incorrect, it goes in the NO pile. YES and NO labels are included for printing, but the letter cards are not. Partners keep track of their YES and NO numbers on the recording sheets and drill the letters they have trouble with.
Letter Sound Fluency
How fast can you go? Test scholars' letter sound recognition with a timed game. Using letter cards of all the letters you've learned so far, learners take turns flipping cards and correctly saying the letter sound. Model this first, showing learners how you want them to move quickly and accurately. Can they finish the stack without a mistake? There isn't much to this lesson plan, however it is something you can add letters to and use for quick practice. Extend to phoneme blends and CVC finally words.
First Grade Skills Assessment: Reproduces Letter Sounds
In this letter sounds instructional activity, 1st graders examine the 26 letters shown out of order and tell their instructor the sounds the letters make. Students complete the activity in the 5 months listed.
Letter Sound Accuracy, Give Me Five
Young scholars practice producing words that beginning with a particular letter sound. In this phonics lesson, students play a game in which a bean bag is passed around and young scholars must give the teacher a word that begins with the letter she assigned. Students then work on coming up with five words.
Letter Sound Accuracy, Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?
Students evaluate words. In this letter sound identification lesson, students participate in determining if the phoneme the teacher mentions is at the beginning of a word. As a whole class they give a thumbs up or down if they hear the targeted sound at the beginning of the word. This lesson contains a link to a word list generator and a link to related activities.
