Hello Monday… So this week is review week. I’m reviewing the letter sounds with my phonics students. Since I have always been a “hands-on” type of teacher, and I don’t really like to give my students the paperwork all the time.
First, we explore the writing of upper case and lower case letters. Then, it’s time to assess their letter/sounds recognition. I’d say a word and asked them to write the beginning, middle and ending sound of that word in the salt tray. Using salt tray is not a new idea, been using it so many times, it’s cheap and most importantly no worksheets required to assess the students’ ability. They had fun, I had fun 🙂
Then I let them free draw, which they enjoyed a lot.
