These activities are meant to strengthen alphabetic awareness, identifying beginning sounds, producing rhyming words and hearing and counting syllables. There are notes at the top of each week to help you lead the students through the activity.
*Note: The reason "Q" has a "U" with it is to teach that Q can't go anywhere without a "U". So when talking about the letter Q and doing letters and sounds, Say "QU", Queen, /qu/-wah. We don't want students to say "uh" at the end of most of their sounds so emphasize it with Q.
My best advice is to keep an phonemic awareness binder or folder where you slip the weekly activities in to a page protector and keep it somewhere you can grab quickly. You can do these activities when you have a few minutes during your morning time or are wrapping up for the day!
