In our drill we covered the "l" blends including: pl, sl, gl, fl, bl, and cl
We utilized a student worksheet to read blends. We used our reading skills to blend consonants together. We also worked on hearing blends. I read particular blends and instructed my students to echo and spell the blend.
Blends we practiced:
bl, tr, gr, sl, dr, cl, br, fl, cr, fr, pr, gl
We practiced spelling by instructing students to echo the word I said, identify the initial sound, and say the letter that spells that sound.
sleep, flat, prince, crude, frog, grace, travel, bread, clue
I think had my students write the entire word
cub, slim, flat, glad, trot, plug, glit, clet
We then practiced writing sentences:
1) Slim Jim had six flats.
2) I am glad he did not slip.
3) Jan set a trap for the twin pigs.
4) We had clams and plums.
5) Set the drum on the log.
6) The crab and the slug slid on the rug.
In lesson 16 we practiced the alphabet and sound system, new learning, reading, spelling, and review.
In the alphabet and sound system section we reviewed the initial, medial, and final positions. We went through the alphabet and identified the before, after, and between missing letters. We also practiced rhyming with our plastic alphabet letters.
We used the letters: A, M, N, T, V, D, P, R, F
We spelled the word man and then we had to spell other words that rhymed with man.
a color (tan)
a large vehicle (van)
a man's name (Dan)
a cooking utensil (pan)
the past tense of run (ran)
a device that blows air (fan)
In new learning we practiced vowel concepts. We went over that a vowel sound is always voiced and open, every word has one vowel, and they make more than one sound. We practiced all 5 vowels and their short vowel sound by using a student worksheet.
Ex: map, mep, mip, mop, mup
Students had to fill in the vowels and pronounce the words.
In reading we covered our daily reading deck, the names of the letters, and the key words and sounds.We worked on high frequency learned words and used another student worksheet to find the high frequency learned words.
January, February, March, April, May, June
America, United States, New York, Texas
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year
We then practiced our learned words : school, where and which. We used another student worksheet to find the learned words in each sentence. By utilizing this same worksheet we practiced proper nouns, and students had to find the proper nouns in each sentence.
For spelling we worked on the spelling deck and the vowels. We worked on the short vowel sounds only and written spelling. We worked on when k is in the initial position and practiced when to use c or k. We used another student worksheet that had exercises for when to use c or k.
In our review, we touched upon the main topics covered in our lesson and the idea of common and proper nouns.
