What a great way to enhance your letter studies! I have included “write the room”, an emergent reader, graphic organizers, song sheet, read aloud, group games, pocket chart activities, centers and worksheets all with a dolphin theme!
In this packet you will find 3 different sets of write the room cards, all things that begin with the letter D. You can find and use the one that best fits your needs. You may still find uses for the other sets, for word walls, vocabulary words, pocket chart activities. You will also find a “word bank” with the words. If you put those in page protectors and inside a folder (the version with the brads for holding hole punched pages), you have an “on the go” mini word wall for independent writing or another center!
You will find pocket chart activity that can also be used as center activity called “Where is my Ducky?” pocket chart game for
upper and lowercase letter recognition. You will find Quiz, Quiz, Trade cards with o words (and directions for doing this game), I Have, Who Has game with D words, Graphic Organizers, writing paper with and without prompts. You will also find 3 different types of Write the Room answer sheets, worksheets for identifying objects with the beginning sound of /d/, and writing D practice sheets. There is a song sheet with the “sign language” D with a fun song. There is also an emergent reader for words that begin with D. . I have included an original read aloud story that has the students listening for the beginning sounds in words while helping “Daisy the Dolphin” find her pod. There is a game to
help “Daisy the Dolphin” find /d/ words. Also, there are dolphins (you can attach to a popsicle stick) to use for word stretching, counting sounds in words, sounding out and writing CVC words with dry erase boards, or even as story starters! This unit is filled with fun dolphin (and letter D) themed fun!
