This class will teach the first quarter of Fry's first 100 words. We will study 5 words per week, and meet 2 times per week. First Meeting per Week: Practice the phonics skills needed to decode this week's sight words. (Sight words can be decoded, but often used more advanced phonics skills, such as blends, digraphs, and shwa sounds.) Next, I will introduce each word and demonstrate blending the sounds together. Students will have an opportunity to build the word with letter manipulatives and...
Students will apply phonics skills to decode high frequency words, then practice those words until they recognize them by sight.
I have 12 years experience as a prek-3rd grade (ages 3-8) teacher, a Master of Arts in Reading degree, and am a current homeschooling parent teaching my own children to read.
Homework for this class is optional but highly recommended. Learners will need additional practice outside of class time to commit each group of sight words to memory. I recommend practicing for about 5 minutes once or twice per day.
Letter manipulatives such as Montessori moveable alphabet, alphabet magnets, or letter tiles such as from Scrabble or Bananagrams. Bananagrams Jr has lowercase letters. You can also make your own manipulatives with plastic or metal lids from beverage containers. Paper and pencil/crayon/marker or chalkboard/whiteboard. Early writers sometimes do better with a chalkboard. If your child is not ready to write, they may use a sensory tray instead. I will also post printable activities in the classroom.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will use informal assessment to guide instruction.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
