This package includes 9 activity sheets and 9 word sorts. The phonograms taught in the Spalding Method are the phonograms used in these activities. Also included are the movements I use to teach the 2-letter phonograms.
To help students learn and write the correct phonograms in words. Also, to sort words that have common phonograms. A phonogram is a letter or combination of letters that represent a sound.
Common Core Standards:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.K.1.A – Print many upper- and lowercase letters.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.2 – Demonstrates understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes)
VPK Standard: IV.G.2.a – Child independently uses letter-like shapes or letters to write words or parts of words.
Why is this activity important for early literacy?
Knowledge of letter sound correspondences is essential to reading and writing. Letter sound correspondences and phonological awareness skills are one of the key components to a solid early literacy program. These skills, along with other early literacy skills are strong predictors of successful readers. If a student know the phonograms and which sounds they represent, reading and spelling are much easier.
