Hands-on, engaging, and systematic phonics for beginning readers! This short i packet is part of Phonics Made Fun Level A Bundle! Included in this bundle is EVERYTHING you need to teach beginning phonics! I have included detailed lesson plans, pre- and post-assessments, differentiation for your below-level, on-level and above-level students. Level A works with short vowel CVC words. Through games, hands-on centers, and activities, students work on building confidence and fluency! The BEST part, learning to read becomes FUN!
The activities included in Phonics Made Fun are low-prep, with minimal cutting. Today we are going to take a look at the short i part of the curriculum.
EASY-TO-FOLLOW LESSON PLANS
These easy-to-follow lesson plans take the guesswork out of how to teach phonics explicitly! Here is a breakdown of the lessons.
Each lesson is broken up into 5 easy-to-follow parts.
- Mini Lesson- Introduce the phonics skill of the day.
- Activities- Activities that pair well with this lesson.
