This program provides you with an easy to implement sets of activities, worksheets, and ideas focusing on CORE vocabulary for every letter of the alphabet.
With "Letter and Core Word of the Week", you will use a systematic way to teach the alphabet and increase phonics skills. My teachers and I have chosen to teach the letters in alphabetic order, however, they could be taught in any order that works with your other curriculum. Because there are more weeks in the school year than letters of the alphabet, go back and start over after finishing the first round!
With this program you will:
* Know exactly what you are teaching week to week.
* Teach and reinforce core vocabulary that will impact all areas of communication.
* Expose students to the alphabet, phonics, and phonemic awareness.
* Feel confident that you are working towards two crucial elements of development and education: literacy and vocabulary.
* Have materials and ideas that you can use over and over again every year.
For each letter of the alphabet this product includes:
Letter and Poster:
The parent/teacher letter and poster should be handed out each week so that you can encourage participation by all staff and family members! You can improve carryover practice with these handy tools.
A weekly black and white worksheet allows for practicing the core word and other letter vocabulary with your students in class or at home. There is no need to create any additional homework.
The communication board combines important core vocabulary with specific vocabulary for the week so that you can model language and work on expressive language even with your very early language learners!
The fun activity for the week focuses on the core word so that you have activity ideas ready to go for tens or hundreds of repetitions of the word in small or large groups.
The file folder activity can be used over and over for years to come and allows you to practice receptive language, expressive vocabulary, and multiple word phrases.
