Learning To Read And Write In K1
My students need writing, alphabet, letter, and phonemic awareness activities to help enhance their reading and writing skills during center time.
Do you remember what it was like when you were just learning to read and write? That was a long time ago for all of us, but for my students, they are just beginning that process. Help me enhance educational success for my students and show them that learning to read and write is fun!
My students are a group of four, turning five, kindergarteners who have been given a wonderful opportunity to be in a Junior/Transitional Kindergarten class.
They have their own curriculum, a centers-based classroom, and a chance to flourish into a traditional Kindergarten class next year. I call my students sponges because they absorb everything. They are smart, kind, funny, respectful, hard-working, and sweet. Our school has a wonderful PTA that supports all the students and their teachers. We are a big family and want our students to succeed. My students have learned the sounds and signals of our Zoo Phonics friends, shapes, colors, sight words, and are beginning to write. Mixed in with all of the above, we have a wonderful Art Docent parent who comes in twice a week to teach the students art, in addition to the art I plan for them as well. My students are becoming well rounded students and are growing everyday. They are a great group of students and I feel honored to be their teacher.
These resources will help me foster more reading and writing success in this great group of kindergarteners.
The sound phones will allow each student to hear themselves read individual phonemes and sounds in each word they read. This will impact their pronunciation as well as fluency.
All of the phonemic awareness activities will provide the students with the opportunity to practice beginning, middle, and ending sounds. It will also let them practice rhyming, in addition to letter recognition. The activities I have chosen are interactive and will reach the different learning modalities in my class.
The Listen & Learn Letter Sounds Activity Program will be a great addition to our listening center. It will of course enhance their listening skills, but most importantly it will help them follow directions and improve their reading skills.
The writing resources will provide my students with the chance to practice writing letters and numbers after I have taught them in the teacher center.
