Looking for a more complete and comprehensive way to Teach Letters and Sounds
Look No More.
Almost at the End... Only 2 more series left to complete your Everything you need to Teach Letters and sounds guide!
This is the 4th Book in the Beginner series. The aim of this Guided Readers Mini Series is to teach Letters and Sounds in a new way. Instead of heavily focusing on letters and sounds in isolation, I have integrated reading, writing, activities and games to teach letters and sounds in a context setting. This affirms that letters and sounds are never isolated, rather they are integrated into everything we do and should likewise be exposed to students in the same manner.
This series focuses on building letter/sound recognition, letter formation and letter identification. This series can be used with Pre-K, K, 1st and ELL ( English Language Learners) and SPED students. The instructions are easy to follow and lesson plans are included with little prep time needed.
****Guided Reading Mini Readers - This Yes Prep guided reading mini readers pack comes with the following:
Yes Prep, but have no fear all the materials are already provided for you, and once you prepped one time, you are set to go.
***How to assemble and use**
•Check table of content for page number of each book.
•Print out all pages together ( each book has between 5-7 pages.
•Keep the pages together in their order and cut in half.
•Staple each half on the right side.
Mini Book letter activities:
•The directions are simple and easy to follow.
Find and color - the letter students are looking for is already at the top of the page. The goal is to look, find the letter and color it.
Trace and write – the students trace and then practice writing the letter on their own.
Each page focuses on 1 letter.
Beginning sound pictures- students need to find and color only the pictures that begin with the focus letter at the top of the page. They cross out all other pictures that don’t start with that sound.
Letter writing worksheets:
On 1 page students practice tracing, then writing the capital letter. On the other page they do the same for the lowercase letter.
using the sentence bank provided students will pick a sentence and write it on the line provided. When finished they will draw a picture to match the sentence. They will continue until they have written all four sentences.
Picture/word support tools- with each book there is a set of picture/word cards for vocabulary. These are meant to support students before reading the book as a building stone to introduce the book, or can be used as a resource tool when they are working on the writing worksheets.
Sentence Building Activity– The sentence building activity is a second writing extension. It can be done 3 ways.
1.Students practice building the sentence with you as a group. This allows all students to have a card and contribute to building the sentence.
2.After building the sentence, students can write the sentence and draw a matching picture.
3.students can have their own set and practice building different sentence and read with a partner.
Beginning Sound Black-out
•Print – cut – laminate ( only cut the letter page, the picture page will be the board you use to cover the letter sounds.).
•As you pick a letter ask students ( taking turns) if they can place the letter card on a matching picture.
•Continue this for all 3 sounds until the whole board is filled.
•You can help students by repetitively saying the letter sounds and firmly enunciating beginning sounds.
Pre and Post Assessment:
1.The pre-assessment, assess students for all the letters they have passed. In the last two sets ( A-H). To administer the assessment pull each students aside one at a time during independent work time or independent reading time.
2.Post assessment, assess for all the letters from the last 2 sets as well as this set (A-L). To administer this assessment pull students one at a time during independent work time or independent reading time.
Letter Review Worksheets:
In order for students to remember all they have learned, their needs to be a review of past material. These letter review worksheets are a good warm up activity that engages them in letter formation as well as picture sound association. First students practice writing the letter, then they will proceed to color the pictures that also begin with the same letter sounds that they practiced writing.
