I just wanted to share something I have been working on with you. As I head into Term 2 with my Kinders, I know my focus has to shift from alphabet and phonics and move onto combining our phonics knowledge to read words.
The fabulous clip art is from Mel @ Graphics From the Pond. I am just loving everything of hers lately!
I tested this out with Miss M who is in Kinder. This is what we started with - 2 word family sheets and the cards that go with each one. We also had the recording sheet in my nifty new sheet protectors that were delivered yesterday from Amazon.
Forgive the jammies - Saturday morning in our house is PJ day until we have to go out. Here is M matching the words to the family ending. I should have taken a video of how she was working it out
Here is our finished family race tracks - the ap and at families.
Now on to the recording. The sheet is black and white so you can copy for each student, or maybe have some laminated ones or do what I did with my protectors (can you tell I am in love with these! And I am so going to order more!!!)
Ta-daaaa! Look at that awesome writing! I was encouraging her to say the words as say was writing to reinforce her phonemic awareness.
Here is a look at what is inside. It includes 20 common rimes including
at, ap, ot, et, ad, an, ab, ay, un, ut, ig, ip, in, it, og, op, ug, ow, oy, ub.
I would love to give one away! So just tell me why you need it! I will pick one comment on Sunday night (so don't forget your email!) And if you don't win the giveaway, I'll have it in my store for $2.50 instead of $3.50 for the weekend. Just click the picture above to go to it.
