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.
Students will recognize objects in nature that are similar in shape to the letters of the alphabet. In this digital camera lesson, students will find objects in nature that look like letters of the alphabet. They will create a poster of their findings.
Sorting objects according to their initial sound gets scholars thinking about letter-sound correspondence in this interactive activity. Start with 26 brown bags, each labelled with a letter of the alphabet. Bring in some magazines with images for learners to choose from, and challenge your kids to cut out corresponding first-sound objects. Encourage them to say the first sound as they categorize each image into the bags. You can do this with last-sound, too!
Students practice letter sounds. In this phonemic awareness lesson, students practice saying each letter sound by playing a game. Students use index cards that have letters printed on them and say the letter sound. Students go as fast as possible to build fluency.
Print and laminate this fun game as a way to help your littlest learners build strong phonological awareness. Children pair up, one pulls a picture card, the other says the name of the image and attempts to match the final sound to the letter(s) on his pyramid of letters card. This is a great way to establish the skills needed to be a good reader.
Practice letter-sound correspondence using this interactive activity which has kids sorting images based on their final sounds. Start by choosing four final sounds to place in an open file folder (refer to image). Partners take turns selecting image cards, pronouncing the image and its final sound, and sorting it under the correct letter(s). They choose cards until all are sorted. This comes with the letters but no image cards. Have kids make them by cutting out images from magazines!
The phoneme train is leaving the station! Get your budding readers familiar with letter-sound correspondence using this fun phonics activity. They set up the initial sound and final sound train cards (included), placing a letter between them. Then, learners choose images to place beneath the train cars to indicate words which begin or end with that sound. You will need image cards and alphabet cards for this. There is a diagram to show you what this set-up looks like.
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.
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.
Students listen to an alphabet book. They explore initial sounds throught the creation of a classroom ABC book. This lesson requires a program application, "Pixie."
Students explore language arts by participating in a letter identification activity. In this spelling lesson plan, 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.
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.
Students explore language arts by participating in a word pronunciation activity. In 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.
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.
Learners spell words using cards with each letter of the alphabet on them. In this alphabet lesson plan, students word in 2 teams and get points for the first team to spell the word correctly.
Young scholars 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.
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.
Young scholars explore letters. In this language arts lesson, students say letter sounds and identify words that begin with the sound. Young scholars hunt through a book and look for words that begin with the given letter.
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.
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 instructional activity, however it is something you can add letters to and use for quick practice. Extend to phoneme blends and CVC finally words.
