In these Smart Board interactive pages children learn to read and become motivated to learn through a variety of games and activities. Spanish-as-a second-language students become engaged and use the pictures to aid in comprehension and language acquisition.
All letters featured have the following activities.
Page 1. You say the name of letter in the center and name the large picture of the object that begins with the letter followed by the letter sound 3 times. The class repeats after the teacher. The teacher then identifies all the smaller pictures along the sides that begin with the letter. This introduces second language learners to new vocabulary associated with the letter and letter sound.
Page 2. The teacher will demonstrate correct letter formation and have students come up to the Smart Board to write the upper and lower case letters. The teacher can begin to draw a picture of something that begins with the letter on top and have students guess what she is drawing. Students can also do this while giving hints before finishing the drawing.
Page 3. Student identify objects that begin with the letter and come up to the Smart Board to verify if the object does or does not begin with the letter. If the object spins it begins with the letter if the object disappears it does not begin with the letter.
Page 4. Student place objects in the garbage can that has the smiley face if it begins with the letter featured. If it does not begin with the letter the object gets placed in the garbage can with the sad face.
Page 5. Teacher read rhyme with students and has students come up to the Smart Board, one at a time to circle the letter featured. There is a space for them to also practice writing the letter.
