10/19 Grade1 Word work at literacy stations
WORD WORK AT LITERACY STATIONS
One of the most rewarding experiences for elementary educators is watching young learners develop into confident readers. There is that "Aha!" moment when a beginner reader masters word-sound connection and reads with accuracy and fluency.
A way to encourage this development is through a variety of sensory activities at literacy stations. In pairs, the first grade class explored word work for "short u" words through the following activities:
1. Writing in a salt tray
2. Listening to and repeating tongue twisters
3. Spelling with magnetic letters
4. Word-picture matching game
5. Use decodable readers to read to self, then read to teacher
Each pair cooperated well and worked self-sufficiently to practice with the five activities.
