Now that our Kindergartners have a solid foundation in letter sounds (m, a ,s, t, p, i, g), we have been working on rhyming words and words that belong in the same word family. We’ve been using interactive activities from starfall.com ‘s learn to read section.
Students were provided with magnetic whiteboards and given opportunities to write any -at words that they could remember. As an extension activity students cut and created -at words based on pictures that they saw.
Today as we continued our lesson on /ar/ words and sounds we practiced making words using cards on an onset / rime workmat. After students had practice building words they recognized from the mini-lesson; they glued on the cards to create their favorite word.
