A crucial part of learning to read and write it having strong understanding of phonics and phonemic awareness. Every week we do several activities that are phonics based. One of them being building words. Using the phonics feature of the week, this week is short vowel e. Student build words after being giving a clue about the word on their white boards. For example: They write the word "hen" then I say, now change the /h/ in hen to a /p/ what is the new word, they write it and then call out what the word is. Volunteers come up to write it on the board so everyone can self correct their own work!
