Class Experience

1.  Recall 26 lowercase phonetic sounds and animals that begin with the same sound 
       CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.3.A  (Consonant sounds)
       CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.3.B  (Short Vowel sounds only are addressed)
2.  Identify words that begin with a letter sound (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.1.B)
3.  Identify a beginning sound for a word or object (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.1.B)
4.  Use oral language to communicate through songs, poems, and finger plays
5.  Engage in brain friendly and body-friendly exercise while learning
For optimal success, students should review hand movements, sounds, and letter names assigned weekly with games or printouts.  For instant at-home fun and review, I recommend downloading the Zoo-phonics online game app "The Address Book".  Free downloads are available in the App Store, Google Apps, and a PC version.  Students will be able to practice the Zoo-phonics song "Come Meet Us at the Zoo" and each of the letter characters, sounds, and movements. Students can also review the characters and sounds with the handouts "Zoo-phonics Cast and Characters" provided by me.   Students will be allowed to bring in ONE stuffed animal or object on Friday.   Students should choose ONE letter and bring ONE object that begins with that letter.
 5 files available upon enrollment
