This engaging and ready-to-use 4-week unit teaches the concepts of beginning sounds and letters (consonants) in a logical, step-by-step sequence that promotes success! The unit begins by teaching the concept of beginning sounds, then moves to teaching common sounds for consonants, and concludes by putting those concepts together to teach beginning letters. Lessons are designed to take approximately 15 minutes per day.
The unit includes the following components:
~ Lesson Guide
*Step-by-step plans for 20 days
*Common core standards
*Student-friendly learning targets for each day
*Daily word lists for additional practice
*Daily student practice pages
~ PowerPoint Presentation
* Slides for daily instruction and practice
* Colorful slides with fun animations
* Notes/suggestions are included for each slide
All materials are ready to use and require no preparation other than copying. This unit is the second unit in a phonics/phonemic awareness series. The first unit--on syllables--is available in my store now (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Slp4jc). Check back for additional phonics/phonemic awareness units that will be coming soon!
[Please note: I have noticed that the margins of the printable pages sometimes look different when printed on different printers, as with many documents. Hopefully, when you print, the margins and borders will be perfectly centered, as they are designed to be! If not, you may want to try printing from a different printer or adjust printer settings if you are able to do that. If that does not work, please send me a comment or question with your e-mail address, and I will contact you by e-mail so we can find a solution that works for you!]
