This post features phonemic awareness activities, emergent reader and worksheet activities related to spring. In the last few posts we focused on why it is important to include “phonemic and phonological awareness” activities within your lesson plans. Since the “Spring” theme focuses on rhyming, we will continue with this focus and more activities related to Spring. Within the theme unit you will find many rhyming picture cards that can be used to develop the concept of rhyme further through playing games.
The video below demonstrates how the pictures were transferred into making a Smart Board game which has been newly added to the theme unit.
