Help primary school pupils learn valuable reading strategies. As they choral read a poster or big book, they predict covered words and learn various reading strategies for figuring out an unknown word. This will help them gain an understanding of the alphabetic principle of associating sounds with letters in order to decode tricky words. Strategies taught include: using context, rereading, using pictures, and chunking. This could benefit your English language learners, too!
Elementary and middle schoolers explore the world of secret writing, otherwise known as cryptography. After an interesting introduction to the activity, learners utilize a decoder badge which uses the St. Cyr cipher - which is a cipher named after a French military academy where it was taught in the 1800s. Everyone learns how to construct his very own secret message using the decoder badge. The innovative lesson has everything you need to successfully implement it with your class.
The skills of decoding, word recognition, oral reading, phonemic awareness, and writing are all covered in this terrifc language arts lesson for 1st graders. In it, pupils discover that letters are written symbols for sounds. They work with print to help them read words, retell a story, and create one of their own. This lesson has everything you need in it for successful implementation. A rich educational experience, for sure!
Decode new words! Second graders practice decoding unfamiliar words while working with a partner. Under the eye of the teacher, pairs read passages, carefully read the comprehension questions, and answer them together. Finally, they answer questions on suffixes and word meanings.
Decoding words in connected text can make emergent readers really feel like they are great readers. They work as a class to sound out simple cvc words located in super short sentences. Tip: Extend this activity by having a variety of high frequency words available for individual learners to switch in and out of sentence frames. The whole class can work to gether to read each persons simple sentence.
Fifth graders identify the parts of a print catalog record as a way to find information and the location of a book in the media center. They complete a worksheet about decoding a catalog record, complete a Mad Libs activity online, and work in pairs to complete a "Catalog Mad-Lib Record" activity. They locate items using the media materials.
Second graders practice decoding unfamiliar words by completing a worksheet. In this literacy lesson, 2nd graders examine reading passages to find unfamiliar words and decode them with a partner. They read a passage about musical instruments while determining the main idea and supporting details and completing a worksheet with the information.
Review skills listed on the board to help learners with decoding skills. Then, read a short story about string instruments, skimming sentence by sentence and circling all unknown words. Next, they focus on the main idea and naming the supporting details and determine what the passage is mostly about. The passage is not included, however any text could be substituted, informational or fictional.
Learn how to decode multi-syllable words with accented syllables. The whole class discusses the accent for two-syllable and three-syllable words. The worksheet mentioned is not included, but a teacher could create a list of grade-appropriate multi-syllable words as a replacement. A text comprehension activity ensues, and again, the text is not included, but any book could be used in conjunction with the script of questions provided.
Third graders participate in an activity in which they use phonetic decoding skills, specifically syllable division and accented syllables. They complete the packet by reading provided text and completing comprehension questions in written form. When deciding on the answers, they underline where they found the answers in the text.
Third graders explore how to use various decoding skills while they are reading. They practice decoding unknown and uncommon words they come across while reading a text. Students read to follow directions. They discuss times when they have read directions and practice reading and decoding directions with a partner.
Third graders read a story and decode unfamiliar words. To increase fluency, 3rd graders read with a partner, read in unison with the class and then predict the outcome of the story. In groups, students discuss the genre of a story. They write their sequence to the story.
Second graders practice decoding unfamiliar words which they find in a piece of text. They complete a reading response activity based on inferring meaning from text, using prediction skills before reading and completing an ending activity. In the fluency section, they reread a passage while working with at partner and finally, complete word work.
