Students will have unlimited access to hands-on literacy games and word work activities that will keep them engaged through play. A great portion of our day is dedicated to guided reading where students complete a literacy center rotation to work independently in small groups. Each group has a chance to silent read, work on writing tasks, read with a partner, and practice using word solving strategies that help them become stronger readers. During this rotation, I meet with each small group to provide more targeted reading instruction . These materials will make our guided reading rotation more rigorous but engaging through play! This is the way kinders learn best. Students will work in teams as they use their grit to power through alphabet, sound awareness and a host of other skills that will help them become strong readers. Most importantly, students will have access to chose literacy activities that meet each of their needs . Each time we introduce a new center to our rotation, students are eager to get a chance to work with something new and hands on. There is no "one-size fits all" approach to literacy, our classroom adjusts to the needs of each child's learning style. Students will use play dough letter mats and letter recognition centers to develop letter identification while also practicing letter strokes for letter formation as a pre-writing skill. As students approach mastery, they will use rhyming and beginning sounds learning packs to increase letter-sound and phonemic awareness. This is crucial for students as they learn to decode and sound out words. Students will understand relationships between consonants, to read words with beginning blends. Each student will have access to twist and turn word building sticks as they strengthen this skill.
