I came up with this new and fun way that will engage beginning readers in math and reading. I left the numbers in order so that beginners will not struggle with number identification. I want them to be able to find the number as quick as possible and move on to the alphabet part of it. Each page focuses on a letter sound. The student will name the picture and say the sound before coloring. We like to repeat the sound while coloring. Example, “Apple, apple,
/a/, /a/, /a/ is what we say when we first name the picture. Then color it in while repeating the same phrase.
UPDATED: Monday morning (April 1st, 2013)
Introduce the vocabulary on the printable during whole group.
Explain how to play the game and how it will help them learn the sounds.
Roll one die (OR choose one dice card from the stack).
Name the number on the die.
Name the picture by saying the name 2 times and the beginning sound 3 times. “Apple, apple, /a/, /a/, /a/. The printable simply instructs them to “say” the sound, but you can give them these instructions if you wish.
Color the picture.
Remember to leave feedback to earn TPT credits.
