Research has shown that students remember concepts taught much longer if the concept is linked to an image or activity that is familiar or exciting. Experience has taught me that any lesson that includes food will be a fun, unforgettable lesson! With that in mind, I have designed 4 power point decoding lessons using food. Providing enough food for 24 students can really break your budget, so the food used is inexpensive and easy to obtain. These power points make a great introduction into decoding strategies that the kids won't soon forget!
Power points introduce the following...
-Decoding c-v-c words is like making a banana split!
-Decoding vowel pattern c-v-v-c is like eating Lucky Charms!
-Decoding words with multi syllables is like eating trail mix.
-Using context clue is like an orange.
