This is an activity for students to learn, improve and/or practice early reading skills. The video includes phonemic awareness, blending and phonic sounds. Students receive guided practice in reading cvc words.
The activity sheets: the worksheet and key are the first two thumbnails. You can save the pictures as jpegs and download them to run copies. You can also download the pdf documents at wwww.ewcata.com if you are unable to download the pages here. If you are unable to download the mp4 file here, go to www.ewcata.com under YouTube videos and find the YouTube video link and PDF documents to download.
In the video, students are shown pictures, listen to the letter sounds and have to color in the correct corresponding cvc word identified in the video on their worksheet. Students are prompted to say the sounds along with the video. Teachers should encourage students to say the sounds out loud with the video and when the video asks for responses.
ASSESSMENT: Also included in thumbnails is an assessment form. Teachers can write in the Student Names and assess their ability to read the CVC words in the video before the activity (pre) and after the video activity (post).
Teacher's note: We have found that this video can be used as an introductory tool as well as a tool for reinforcement of CVC practice in the classroom. It is good practice to review the words with students either one to one, small group or even whole group after the activity has been completed.
The activity can be done whole group, small group or as a center. For whole group, the teacher would simply display the video using their LCD projector and the students would complete the worksheet at their desks while the video plays. Teachers may pause the video at any time to add their own direct instruction if they chose. The video is self correcting so it does show the answers as it goes.
