It may be March, but here it is like May! We have been so lucky with our weather. These last few days have been close to 80 degrees- wonderful! So who wouldn’t enjoy some pinwheel fun right now? These colorful pinwheels were found at everyone’s favorite place to shop- Target! Only a dollar each! I saw these and knew they would be perfect for our cvc word learning. My classes have been working on breaking works into beginning sounds and chunks. Then on to blending them back together.
Here we have our all important pocket chart that we use ALL the time! I put a chunk in the pocket chart and hand out beginning sound cards to the students. When it is their turn to come up to the chart, I have the student be the teacher. They show their letter, tell the class the name of their letter, and then the sound their letter makes. Next the letter card goes in the chart, but separtated from the chunk.
Then I have the student practice saying the beginning sound and the chunk as they slide the beginning sound to the chunk to make a new word.
