Here’s a great activity for reading and phonics instruction for Kindergarten, First Grade, or Second Grade. It's perfect for word work and phonics lessons. Word families use onset and rime (beginning consonants and word bases) to help young readers apply knowledge of phoneme-grapheme correspondence to sound out words. Use the power of PowerPoint to take advantage of the timed animation features to make the letters appear automatically to support students in sounding out words.
Four long a word bases are included: _ee, eed, eak, eat
This is perfect for use with a Smart Board, Activboard, or other interactive whiteboard. It can be used without that technology as long as you have PowerPoint and a computer. NOTE FOR MAC USERS: The touch (trigger animation) features used on the two slides with pictures do not work on a Mac; pictures can be reviewed and discussed without animation. The remaining timed animations with letters used to practice reading the words are compatible with Macs.
Each PowerPoint presentation in this bundle focuses on a single word family and includes the following words:
_ee: bee, fee, lee, see, wee, flee, free, glee, tree, knee
_eed: deed, feed, heed, need, seed, weed, bleed, breed, freed, speed
_eak: beak, leak, weak, creak, sneak, speak, squeak, streak, tweak
_eat: beat, heat, meat, neat, seat, cheat, cleat, pleat, treat, wheat
Each of the five PowerPoint presentations contains 22 slides. Slide 2 emphasizes auditory practice of phonics with the recognition of rhyming words using pictures. Slides 3 and 4 connect phonemes with corresponding graphemes for the word family. Slides 6 to 15 give practice with applying knowledge of phoneme-grapheme correspondence to sound out words using timed animation for support. Slides 16 and 17 give practice sounding out words without the support of the timed animation. The remaining slides include the title, directions, and teacher notes. A different colored striped background is used to help distinguish each presentation. The font for all presentations is Century Gothic in blue.
The sample images show four slides from different presentations. The preview download is PowerPoint with SAMPLE SLIDES from DIFFERENT presentations. It will give you an idea of the animations that are included in every Word Family PowerPoint. Each of the PowerPoints that you purchase will focus only on one word family as indicated in the title.
