Have you tried Flipped Lessons? They have been a game changer for me! Flipped lessons are basically a way to use video to teach a lesson. You can’t always give direct instruction to ALL your kids with all their levels everyday. Flipped lessons help me feel like I’ve cloned myself. This includes 2 video lessons using phoneme segmentation cards to increase phoneme segmentation fluency PSF in DIBLES. Your kids will have a “hands on” phoneme lessons without you teaching it!!! I added 2 assessment sheets so you can assess which phonemes your kids struggle with. Do they need more practice with ending sounds? Are they hearing the vowels? The data sheet will help you determine what their needs are, so you can adjust your word work instruction. One lesson includes a slow turtle and a fast bunny to help the kids grasp the concept. I've added a turtle stick to make it fun for the kids. Once they understand you can move onto the next video that provides additional practice. This resource gives you the ability to differentiate levels. I use these lessons with a headset splitter so a group of kids can access the lesson together. I also use it on a projector for the whole class. That way I can walk around and assess and lend support because I’m not actually teaching! You can also send it home for homework.
How do flipped lessons work?
When you download the pdf you will get access to 28 phoneme segmentation cards with CVC words and another PDF with 30 phonemen segmentation cards with letters and extra visual support. There are QR codes that the kids can scan to gain access to the video. The kids simple scan the code and the video pops up. I’ve also included hyperlinks to the videos just in case you don’t use QR codes. (You can download a QR reader for free!!!) Recently updated to include links to YOU TUBE for those who do not have access to Google Drive. The videos talk the kids through the lesson. You can walk away and have a reading group, or help another student. These lessons are a life saver for kids who need extra support with segmenting words and increasing reading fluency through phonic skills.
Flipped lessons have been around in the upper grades for a while, but I hadn’t seen them in kindergarten. I have found they are a powerful tool in giving my kids extra practice with skills they struggle with. It is perfect for my lowest groups who need extra practice. A great addition to your RTI groups and your daily 5
Give it a try and you’ll be a believer!
