Use this smartboard file to teach your students about hearing sounds in words. Start with the concept that sentences are built with words, words are built with letters, and letters are made of sounds. Progress to identifying what sounds they hear in single syllable words. Each picture includes elkonin boxes so students can tap out the sounds they hear in the words. Finish the lesson by pulling and using examples from students writing or shared reading.
I teach this lesson in first grade in September, but it is a concept late kindergarten could also grasp.
Don't forget to stop over at my store and use my other phonics lessons like "Making Rhymes"!
