A kindergarten class consisting of 11
girls and 9 boys.
My class of Kindergarteners will have mastered
Phonemic Awareness by the end of the school
year. Through singing, dancing, use of Elkonin
boxes and tokens, activities to develop rhymes,
oddity task activities, oral blending tasks, oral
segmentation tasks, phonemic manipulation
activities, and the use of books for: rhyming,
alliteration, and phonemic manipulation. Their
parents will have access to several different tools
to help their children such as: facebook, twitter,
pinterest, a blog, podcasts, and a webquest. I will
observe the students daily on their progress and
individual abilities. At the end of the year I will
use an assessment that will test them on their
skills in phonemic awareness and I will be
looking for complete accuracy.
S- Students will sing the song “Do You Know”, participate
in the activity extend the rhyme (explained on next slide)
and work together on the smartboard to match pictures
with their rhyming words.
S- Singing, game/activity, podcast, and blog.
U- We will sing the song “Do You Know”, complete the
activity extend the rhyme, the podcast will be a takehome read-aloud for the students, and the blog will be
introduced for the parents to utilize throughout the school
R- The students will be required to participate in our daily
activity and in practicing our song.
E- I will assess them individually during our whole group
activity. I will do this through observation if they can
answer with a rhyming word. While using the smartboard I
will be able to tell which students are grasping the
concept of rhyming.
Begin our day with a read aloud of Hop on Pop by Dr.
Sing the song "Do You Know?" to the tune of "Muffin
Man", several times asking the students to suggest
one syllable rhyming words to replace the words
king and ring. (Continued on next slide)
Quick activity of Extend the Rhyme: explain to
students that you're going to say three rhyming
words (ex. cat, bat, and hat) and then that you want
them to listen carefully and continue the rhyme with
different words. Such as mat, fat, pat, and sat.
(Nonsense words are permitted)
Do you know two rhyming words,
Two rhyming words,
Two rhyming words?
Oh, do you know two rhyming words?
They sound a lot alike.
King and ring are two rhyming words,
Two rhyming words,
Two rhyming words.
King and ring are two rhyming words.
They sound a lot alike.
S- Students will participate in both of our whole group
S- Stand, Sit, and Turn Around, the class puppet, the qr,
U- Using different activities to teach children is a better
way to get positive results rather than just using a
worksheet every day. I have created a twitter page full of
links to more tasks to help parents with their children at
home. The QR will send students to a song that I would like
for them to use to learn all of their sounds.
R- I will expect full participation from all of the students
during both of the oddity task activities I have prepared.
E- My assessment for today will be based off of
observation of my students’ accuracy during both
activities. I will ask the parents to communicate with me
about their at home work.
Distribute a set of picture cards to every child. Pull out a puppet
and then explain to the children that he/she only likes things
whose names begin with "m". Tell the children to hold up their
picture cards if the item in the picture begins with "m", and then
have them make the initial sound. Example:
Puppet: I like marshmallows.
Child: (holds up the mittens picture) M-m-mittens.
Puppet: I see mittens. Mittens. M-m-mittens, /m/, just like
Stand, Sit, and Turn Around is a fun activity to include children
and their names. Say a sound, such as /b/. Have each student
whose names begin with that sound must bounce like bunnies,
or other movement that starts with the same sound as their
name. (Continue until all students have done something)
S- Students will sing “Old McDonald Had a Box” and
play the game “Guess It”.
S- “Old McDonald” song, which will be displayed
over the elmo (document camera) and the game
U- Since I am teaching kindergarten I like to use
songs and games because it’s a good way to get
the students involved but to also better help them
learn. Today I will introduce Pinterest to my parents
where they can access different activities for their
children to practice oddity tasks. The lyrics of our
song will be displayed on the Elmo.
R- I always require full participation from all students.
If not, they will be disciplined accordingly.
E- During the game Guess It, I will be able to assess
each of my students based on their oral blending.
After my assessment I will know whether I need to
continue the lesson or if they have mastered this task.
Begin with the song "Old McDonald Had a Box", while
singing it several times you will segment different onesyllable words for children to blend. (Continued on next
Play a game called Guess It! Where you orally segment the
name on an animal and have children guess the animals
Teacher: I'm thinking of an animal. /p/...ig. What am I thinking
Children: A pig!
Old McDonald had a box, E-I-E-I-O
And in the box he had a /k/....an, E-I-E-I-O
With a can, can, here
And a can, can, there,
Here a can, there a can,
Everywhere a can, can
Old McDonald had a box, E-I-E-I-O
S- Students will sing the song, What’s the Sound. After the
song I will ask students to identify the sound that is similar in
a series of words (explained more on next slide)
S- Song, the lyrics will be displayed on Elmo. Whole group
activity of oral segmentation.
U- Another song for them to learn so that they can
practice at home. I will ask my parents to like our class’
Facebook page so that they will be up to date with our
class’ daily schedule and so that they can easily ask me
R- With the students being familiar with my procedures by
this point, I know that they will participate in the song and
E- If a student constantly responds with the incorrect
sound then I will know that they need more practice with
Start with a song called What's the Sound? And sing it
to the tune of Old McDonald. Use map and money,
leaf and lucky, ten and table.
Explain to children that you're going to say three
words, and you want them to listen closely and tell
you what sound they hear that is the same in all the
words. So, for example, if you say teeth, bean, and
feet, children will respond with /ē/. Be sure to keep
the target sound in the same position.
What's the sound that these words share?
Listen to these words.
Sad and silly are these two words.
Tell me what you've heard, (ssssssssss)
With a /s/, /s/ here, and a /s/, /s/ there,
Here a /s/, there a /s/, everywhere a /s/, /s/.
/s/ is the sound that these words share.
We can hear that sound!
S- Students will manipulate their own names with a different
initial sound, they will manipulate other words during our game,
and during their practice on the smartboard.
S- We will use the smartboard for practice online, we will have a
read-aloud which they will also have access to a podcast for at
home (explained more on next slide). I will send home a letter
with information about our class’ webquest.
U- With the practice on the smartboard and the activity we will
do in class the students should be able to manipulate the initial
sounds in their names as well as the given words that I provide.
R- The students will participate in the post, during, and after
activities of the read aloud. They will practice together on the
smartboard. The parents will be required to use the webquest if
their child misses any regular school days.
E- Based on my observation during today’s lesson I will evaluate
and be able to adapt according to my students’ progress.
Sound of the day, say you choose /l/, then Peter will be
Leter and Bonnie will be Lonnie. It's simple and easy and
will stick with the children.
Do a read aloud with the book, There's a Wocket in my
Pocket by Dr. Seuss.
Explain to the children that you're going to play a game,
they're going to be making new words by replacing the first
sound in each word you say with /s/. For example, if you
say the word hand, children are to say sand. Continue with
the words: hit, well, funny, bun, mad, bend, rat, rope. (You
will give them laminated cut out letters for this game)
Have the children practice phonemic manipulation on the
smartboard with the use of online games, such as Letter
Lifter, Phonic Fighter, and Phoneme Pop.
