Today was a teacher work day we had a chance to get everything ready for a fun filled week of PHONICS!!!
A bunch of fabulous bloggers like Babbling Abby, Erica Bohrer, Michelle Oaks and The Teacher Wife (Lindsey) have already shared some fabulous ideas! Why recreate the wheel? We bought Abby's fabulous Pirate Pack last year and plan on using it again this year to focus our entire week around
pirates!!! Last year it proved to be one phonics pattern our kiddos NEVER forgot!
Tomorrow we are going to start our literacy block by introducing our new phonics pattern (r-controlled vowels /ar/) by reading "How I became a Pirate"
We are going to incorporate a little WHOLE BRAIN TEACHING/LEARNING by doing a little partner "mirror" and "teach" with the sounds of /ar/ in our best pirate voices! We will also bring in some Kagan learning by doing some rally robin with /ar/ words that sound like a pirate and words that sound like "air".
Examples:Yard/Garden/Tar and Care/Fare/Stare. We will use a T-Chart to record our new learning.
We are going to give our students a few minutes to makeup their own pirate friend "matey".
