cool picture based phonics practice

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 26, 2013 7:39 PM

Phonological awareness at the phonemic awareness level and phonics are crucial to learning to read! Sounds of the spoken language lay the foundation for the sound/letter relationships in the written word.

Ser ud til at være et godt værktøj i begynder-engelskunderviningen i DK

Gibson - A Story-Telling and Re-Telling Activity (TESL/TEFL)

Have students create stories in groups, then re-tell them to other students.
Suzie Sue's insight:

Take this activity to the next level and have the other groups retell the stories they were told.   

 

(instead of pictures from magazines, you could use word/picture dice or simply ask students to do a brainstorm to come up with there favourite words)

SOLO - animated short film

My first animated short film (2002) Dir: Ricardo Moyano Maria Calatayud Ysabel Castro
Suzie Sue's insight:

Suggestion: use this clip to practice prediction skills.  What happens next? Stop the clip before the man takes a picture of the old lady.  ask students, in groups, to decide what they think happens next.

How to make a sock puppet

How to make a puppet using: A sock, pingpong ball and icecream container.

 

Get every student to bring to school - an old/new sock or even a pair of socks to make one/two characters.  Once the students have made their puppets, have them answer questions such as, "What's it's name?" "Where is it from?" "How did you meet him/her?" "What's his favourite food?" etc... Then ask the students to introduce their puppet to their friends puppets and so on. One idea I particularly like is, for homework, Ss have to take their puppets to a place of their choice then take a photo of it. The next day they have to present their photos, telling the class, where he/she was, what he did and who he/she met etc... The options are endless.  I think these are perfect to exercise creative thinking and inject an element of fun in the classroom.
