  2. 2. Sample Album of Learning Task Documentation Entry ‫ ر‬Learning Task: ‫س‬ Play dough letters sounds Learning task adapted form: Focus letter would be made out of modeling clay (preferably one that hardens). The children would feel the letters and find the pictures that begin with the letter sounds. After, the letters would be placed in a container. One child isblindfolded and the other child chooses a letter to give to thatchild. They must guess what letter they are feeling. After, the roles are reversed.Age group:4.5 to 6.5 yearsSubject area:LanguageSubject strand:Reading and WritingSubject Topic:Letter soundBackground information:
  3. 3. Children need many experiences working with letters of thealphabet before they can actually begin to print letters using apencil or marker. Understanding can begin in a receptivemanner with activities such as having children move theirfingers over the shapes of clay letter. In this learning task, clayletters are rolled and put on colored cards. Once student canrecognize and name letters, they could attempt to matchletter and pictures of the first sound. Letter combinations canplaced on cards as letter chunks.Student Learning Outcomes:Reading & Vocabulary:Names the pictures and pronouns the first letter.Writing:Moves their hand over the shapes of clay letter.Prerequisite concepts, Skills, &Values: • Follows class routines for selecting, using and returning individual learning task • Adopts class routines for obtaining teacher support to demonstrate learning tasks and to obtain assistance • Small muscle control to trace the clay letters • Recognizes and names letters • Recognizes tactile shapes from work with three dimensional shapesLearning Theory & Instructional Strategy:
  4. 4. • The activity follows the constructivist theory of learning in that the child learns about letter formation by actually tracing the letters themselves • The instructional strategy is independent learning with self-correction • The teacher demonstrates the learning task for the child initially, and then the child works on its own perhaps working with the same task for several days to reach the mastery level.Student Characteristics Accommodated: • Accommodating both bodily kinesthetic, spatial, and naturalistic intelligences underlie the design of this activity as student enjoy the texture, and sight of the clay and observe the shapes and patterns of letters. • The activity provides concrete experience leading to the more abstract recognition and formation of printed letters. • Visually impaired students are aided with the tactile feel of the letters and their large size. • Children only engage in this activity when it is developmentally appropriate for them and are not force to move along with the entire class or through the forced progression inherent to printed workbooks.Introduction of the Learning Task:
  5. 5. • Show the child how to remove the activity tray from the shelf noting the placement of each item. • Take the learning task to an open space at a table • Demonstrate how to trace the shape of a letter while saying the sound that the letter makes. • Show the child how to trace the shape of letters while saying the sound, which they represent.• Feel the letters and find the pictures that begin with the letter sounds. After, the letters would be placed in a container.• Choose one child who is blindfolded and the other child chooses a letter to give to that child. They must guess what letter they are feeling and then bring the pictures of sound letters. After, the roles are reversed. • Say that letters can be models to use while a thick pencil or paintbrush. • Each week, the student should do five letters only according to the easiest sounds. • Show the child how to move the play dough to the tray. Preparation:
  6. 6. Print out enough pictures of the first five letters ((،‫ن،ف،س،ع‬2) ‫ ر‬pictures for each letter). Cut out these pictures and glue iton the cards. Laminate the cards. Roll the clay to make theletter shapes. Put the letters to the laminated and coloredpaper which using as backgroundPlay Dough Recipe: • 250 ml flour • 125 ml salt • 250 ml water • 30 ml vegetable oil • 30 ml cream of tartar • Food colouring • Empty plastic containers • Parchment paperInstructions: Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and oil together in saucepan. Slowly add the water mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the dough becomes stiff. Pour your dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Set aside to cool. When the dough is cool, knead it with your hands until it is pliable but not mushy. Add a few drops of food coloring and knead again to add colour to the dough.Tools and equipment needed:
  7. 7. • 2 Pictures of each letter • Clay • 5 colored cards according to the number of letters. • 2 containers • Scissors • Super Glue.Laminated Letter Sheets: • File of Arabic letters • Computer printout each of the pages of the file • Pages glued to card • Pictures laminatedChecklist of Tray items: 1. Tray 2. Container of Arabic letters 3. Container or bag of pictures 4. Laminated sheets of lettersExtension Activities: 1. Students roll the play dough to make the letters by molding the printed letters. 2. Students could go on to use paintbrush strokes to form letters of their names.
  8. 8. 3. Students could use a wet sponge to form letters on concrete or a chalkboard. 4. Students could use a large, thick pencil to form letters and print their names.Enrichment Activities: 1. Students could be provided with specific letter combinations chunks to address specific phonics skills (such as pronounced and no pronounced letters). 2. Students could be provided with all letters combinations as an aid to the letter of place value with double-digit numbers.Assessment Techniques: • Student compares play dough letters with the pictures sound and self corrects. • Instructor observes student while working and provides formative feedback. • Instructor examines and analyzes finished product. Feedback Suggestions: • How you match the pictures as the letters? • Please read the clay letters and its pictures. • Give me two examples of things or names that are started with same sound? • How can you write this letter? Alternate Play Dough Letter Activity:
  9. 9. Students can look at a sheet of laminated letters andattempt to form various letters using play dough.Evaluation Rubric: 1. Has difficulty keeping finger on the clay letters and names the sounds. Transfers only a few letter strokes to paper and remind him about the sound. 2. Forms letters with reversal and/or missing strokes and names some of pictures. 3. Forms most letters and matching the sounds of pictures. 4. Forms all letters correctly matching the sounds of pictures.Vocabulary:Letter, sound, play dough, print, model, & traceReferences: from:, Hints, &Suggestions: • Remember to make play dough letters before and store it in the container.Key Words:
