Pop-Your Way to Letter Sounds

My students need to use the Pop & Match Beginning Phonics Games to practice beginning, middle and ending sounds. This skill will make learning to read much easier.

My Students

I teach a wonderful group of kindergarten students who are always willing and eager to learn. Our school is currently a Pre-K to 8th grade school with a high school being added very soon. We continue to grow in size and numbers each year. My students are high in energy and they learn at a rapid pace. I am constantly seeking new ways to keep them on task and challenged. The love of learning I see in their eyes will only make their journey in education exciting and limitless.

My Project

We all know the importance of having a solid foundation to begin reading. My students will be using these fun letter sound activities to enhance their letter naming and sound production skills. They will spend time strengthening their knowledge of vowel sounds and begin building words with a hands on approach. The letter magnets and word blending activities will take my pre-readers into the world of sounding out words and eventually reading. Once ready, the blends and digraph activities will give my students the skills they need in first grade. We all know the best way to learn is through fun and tangible experiences. These activities will be the tools they need to make learning fun!
