I was thinking one day about how to get my kids more repetitions of sound-symbol practice. I am also always trying to maximize instruction throughout the day. This is what I came up with. “Give Me Five When You Walk By” gives students a chance to mix gross motor movements of slapping the hand, verbalizing the sound the letter or letters make and visually seeing those letters. This mixture helps the sound-symbol connection STICK! I would hang up a sound after I introduced it. It started with just on the door frame of my classroom and soon extended down the hall, and even into the bathroom. Kids from different grades were “caught” slapping and saying the sounds as they walked down the hall. What a great use of otherwise wasted time! Of course modeling first and set boundaries, but have fun with these. The kids love them!
What you get:
Two “Give Me “FIVE” When You Walk By” posters.
Hands with all alphabet letters and common spelling patterns.
