Sound Skills Oral Language Activity - Early Reading and Writing Skills

Today, I practised this Sound Skills activity with my students. It covers:
- sound segmentation
- sound blending
- sound-letter correspondence
- counting phonemes (sounds)

We gather in a circle and one student writes our letters on the whiteboard or SmartBoard. As we progress with our Words Their Way accomplishments, I add blends, digraphs, and long vowel patterns.

Recording it on Audioboo was just an added bonus. My students ask me to plug it into our SmartBoard audio system so they can hear themselves "from the ceiling" (where the speakers are). Adorable!

  1. cute! We do a take on The Wheels on the bus to review our letter sounds. I like how you are putting the sounds together and making a word. Might try this this week with our short vowel A words.
