In this lesson students and I will first take turns making a quick prediction about what we think the book is going to be about (3-5 minutes). I will then read the book aloud to the students, having them repeat words on that page that display the 'st' phonics sound and point out whether it is at the beginning, middle, or end of the word (10 minutes). After we've read the book and taken a few moments to refer back to our predictions, we will complete 10 riddles together as a class. I will give...
Students will be able to identify the 'st' phonics sound in a word and tell whether it is in the beginning, middle, or end of the word as well as list words from their own memory that display this sound.
I have spent a full year teaching first grade phonics lessons. My previous 1st graders showed great interest in the interactive portions of this lesson and really enjoyed creating cheers together! The riddles keep them engaged as well as offer me a perfect opportunity for assessment. I have had great success with this lesson in the past with learners beginning to read, practicing their speech sounds, and identifying letter combinations.
Students may have an optional piece of paper and pencil to write down their words for the cheer. This is optional and no other materials are required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is assessed throughout the lesson, when students are asked to point out specific words on each page that exhibit the 'st' sound. This will allow me to gauge how much support to offer students during the riddle portion and cheer portion of the lesson. I will differentiate instruction for the second half of the lesson based on learner progress during the first half of the lesson and offer more or less support accordingly. At the end of the lesson students are asked to apply what they learned and come up with words on their own, their ability to do this with or without support will allow me to assess whether they have mastered the 'st' sound or need more practice.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
