Sounding Out Letters
Learning Goals: Teacher-Directed, Phonetic Awareness, Sight Word Recognition, Group Activity
- Write two letters on the board (e.g., ‘an’). Choose another letter with the students (e.g., 'C')
- Ask students to place the chosen letter somewhere in the word that makes sense.
- Practice sounding out all the letters in the new word.
- When a student has placed the letter, the whole class says “what do you get with (consonant - 'C') and (other letters - 'AN')” and says the whole word ('CAN'), and claps.
