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.
