    Week of 4/6 - through the remainder of remote learning

    Individual reading sessions for my kindergarten students are now online.

    Week of 3/30

    Optional activities for letter 'e':

    Sound Production Cue: "When you say /eee/, your mouth is open, and your tongue is behind your bottom teeth.  Say /eee/.  Did your mouth open?  Did you feel your tongue behind your bottom teeth?” 

    Letter and Sound Hunt:  Children will enjoy looking for items in the house or yard that begin with /eee/, like egg and elbow.  They can find, cut, and paste words from magazines that have the letter 'e' in them, as well as pictures that begin with the sound /eee/.

    Rainbow Words: Have fun spelling words with rainbow colors (crayons or colored pencils).  Here are some words (gab, sub, lag, jab, big, job, bit, cut, cot) to sound out with fingers and then spell.

    Memory Game: Write some of the review letters (w, g, u, j, n, b, d) on index cards-- 2 of each letter.  Shuffle and place the cards face down.  Players take turns turning over 2 cards, saying the letter name and sound.  If the cards match, the player keeps the pair and goes again.  The player with the most cards wins. 

    Previous letters and sounds to review, as well as practice writing, are:  m, p, f, c, t, s, d, l, a, o, r, b, i, n, g, u, j, w.

    Week of 3/23

    Optional activities for letter 'w':

    Sound Production Cue: "When you say /www/, your lips make a circle.  Say /www/ and feel your lips make a circle.” 

    Sound Hunt:  Children will enjoy looking for items in the house or yard that begin with /w/ and then counting them.  Where were the most /w/words found?  

    Rainbow Words: Have fun spelling words with rainbow colors (crayons or colored pencils).  Here are some words (rat, cob, jab, bus, sat, tub, rot) to sound out with fingers and then spell.

    Memory Game: Write review letters (t, a, o, r, i, n, u, j) on index cards-- 2 of each letter.  Shuffle and place the cards face down.  Players take turns turning over 2 cards, saying the letter name and sound.  If the cards match, the player keeps the pair and goes again.  The player with the most cards wins.

    Week of 3/16 

    Optional activities for letter 'j':

    Sound production cue: "When you say /j/, your tongue is up and your lips are open.  Watch me-- /j/.  Open your lips and say /j/.”  

    Sound Hunt:  Children will enjoy looking for items in the house or yard that begin with /j/.  This will be a tricky job-- I challenge students to find more items than I did!  What two- and three-sound words can they segment (cup is /c/ u/ /p/), blend (/d//o/ /g/ is dog), spell, and read?  Previous letters and sounds to review and use for activities are:  m, p, f, c, t, s, d, l, a, o, r, b, i, n, g, u.

    Keep enjoying opportunities to read together as a family.  Along with fostering a love for reading, you are also modeling excellent reading fluency and promoting vocabulary development and comprehension.
