Mini-Lesson on Beginning & Ending Sounds
We have been focusing a lot on beginning sounds in words, as well as indivdual letter sounds so far this school year. Today, we began to also look at the ending sounds in words. We focused on four different words...ladder, jeep, wagon and moon. We looked at the beginning sound, said the sound and made the signal and then did the same thing for the ending sound in the word. We then pointed to the beginning sound to match the picture to the sound and also did the same for the ending sound. This is a pre-reading strategy that will help students when they are practicing the strategy match the picture to the word.
