Students work with phonics. For this letter/sound correspondence lesson, students match consonant and vowel sounds to the correct letter. Students use an interactive Powerpoint to practice this skill. Students then participate in a cube activity to determine if a letter sound belongs in the beginning, middle or end.
Although the directions here are a bit confusing, the concept is quite simple. Emergent readers practice letter recognition and letter-sound correspondence through multiple intelligence activities. They form trains based on initial phonemes, identifying objects and segmenting the onset. They participate in a small-group matching game using the same materials. This will take some set-up on your part.
Practice lowercase letters i-n with this initial sounds worksheet. There is a row of three objects for each of these letters, and scholars examine them to determine which does not begin with the letter sound. This would work best with adult guidance; ask learners to say each letter sound and name the objects. Then, have them isolate initial sounds before circling the one that doesn't belong.
Emergent readers use a letter cube to identify, blend, and make words. They roll each of the three letter cubes, mark down the letters they rolled, then blend the letter sounds together to make a word. They record each word on a collection sheet and determine if the words they write are real or nonsense. Letter cubes are included, just print and use.
Like the classic game concentration, youngsters must employ both their memories and letter sound skills to succeed at this literacy game. Partners choose from rows of upside-down cards trying to match letters to images with the corresponding initial sound. Although none of the cards are included, finding them or even making them would be easy. Consider handing out magazines and having pairs create the cards themselves!
Readers listen for sounds in different positions in words as they pretend to be detective's assistants. They practice writing all the letters they know in their writing journals. In the text comprehension section they examine machines and share what they learn with classmates.
Complete a phoneme identity activity in which readers tell the position of an identify phoneme in a word. They review the letter and sound recognition of /sh/. In the comprehension section, they find screws around the school before studying inclined planes. They act out the nursery rhyme, "Old Mother Hubbard."
