Accuracy-Beginning & Ending Sound Word Match
One of our mini-lessons today focused on beginning and ending sounds. I placed five cvc words on the board and five matching pictures below the board. Before we began, we named off what each picture was and the students thought in their heads which words might match those pictures. One student at a time came up and picked a picture and matched it to the correct word using their knowledge of beginning and ending sounds. After matching the word, we used our Zoo Phonics sounds and signals to match the picture and word. For example, for the picture/word "bus" we said each sound in isolation and then blended the sounds together to make the word. We started with "b", "u", "s" and put it together and read "bus"!
