Help me give my students Letters Alive® Plus, a supplemental reading kit that incorporates evidence-based best practices to teach early literacy skills.
My students need exposure to letters and letter sounds for beginning reading. This program gives them many technology opportunities to manipulate and interact with letters.
My students come into my room with very few exposures to reading or outside experiences.
My goal is to provide them with many opportunities to learn and grow. By the end of the school year, my goal is to have every child reading above grade level for the coming year.
80% of our school population is ELL and low income students. Many students are not exposed to conversation and experiences to build their vocabulary or background knowledge. Many of my students have never even been out of our small town. I try to bridge that gap and provide what I can to give them new knowledge and communication skills for the future.
This multi-modality and cross-curricular approach appeals to a broad range of learning styles and abilities.
The lessons and activities are presented within a theme, which includes animals, and ties into sciences.
Children are hearing, seeing ,touching, building, and speaking while enjoying a positive and engaging experience that increases proficiency and retention.
Strengthens Reading Comprehension Skills
Letters alive® Plus builds students' phonemic awareness and phonic skills, presenting the sounds of the letters and connecting those sounds to the letters themselves. In addition, the lessons utilize 97 sight word cards to strengthen comprehension and reinforce concepts of print through sentence building exercises with instant visual and audio feedback.
Increases Vocabulary via Word Building Activities
The Building Words of the software teaches letter recognition, letter combinations, and phonics while strengthening phonemic awareness through word building. The Augmented Reality technology allows students to use the cards to see 3D representations of each letter and letter combination. Virtual buttons allow students to hear the sounds of each letter, blend, digraph, and rime. Students can then blend those sounds and build words.
