Phonics Sounds Ordering Guide

Importance of Phonics

Research has proven that phonics needs to be taught within our classrooms.  There are different approaches to teaching phonics, which are outlined in the link below:

 

Different Approaches to Teaching Phonics and Findings

 

Kinderplans Phonics Program

The Kinderplans phonics program uses a combination of these approaches.  The video below provides an informative description of the program.

 

Ordering of Teaching Phonics

How should different phonics sounds be introduced in terms of ordering?  I have often been perplexed by this myself.  Below is a guide that will provide assistance with planning.  I have also provided visuals that I use when I go beyond teaching just the consonants and vowels.  The Kinderplans alphabet program provides effective visuals for teaching the consonants and vowels.Letter Ff

 

Consonants 

Single consonants are the easiest to learn.  Consonants can be divided into three categories:

 

Stretchable Consonants

These are the easiest for the learners to remember and hear.  When you say the letter name you can hear its corresponding sound be stretching the end.

l, f, m, n, r, s, v, z

Plosive ConsonantsLetter Bb

You can hear the sound in these letter names as well but air flow does not allow you to stretch the sounds.

b, d, j, k, p, t and q

Tricky Consonants

The consonants below are trickier because you cannot hear the sound within the letter name.

c, g, h, w, x and y

VowelsLetter Hh

Short vowels are taught first because phonics rules often determine if a long vowel sound is made.

 

Consonant Digraphs

The next group of sounds to be taught are the vowel digraphs.  These are consonants that come together to make a special sound.    The most common digraphs are outlined below:

sh, ch, wh, th

Consonant Blends

This is when two are more consonants are blended together.  Some common consonant blends are outlined below:sh and magic e

bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fr, tr, fl, gl, gr, pl, pr, sl, sm, sp, st

 

Final “e”

The next group, are the final “e” words.  This is when the long vowel sound is taught in relation to the “e” being placed in the final position of the word.

make, pine, kite, cone

 

Vowel Digraphs

This is when two vowels are together in a word.  These together can make a long vowel sound heard by the first vowel, but this does not always occur.

boat, read, pay, feet, Vowel Digraphs

 

Vowel Diphthong

Is a combination of two adjacent sounds within one syllable.  Examples of vowel diphthongs are outlined below:

out, soil, toy, haul

 

R-Controllers

The letter “r” controls the sounds the vowel is going to make.

teacher, shark, star, birdr-controllers

 

Fabulous Freebies – Phonics Visuals

In the link below are visuals that I use to teach other phonics sounds once my learners have master the consonant and vowels sounds.

Rhyming Activities

I have noticed that children are arriving in our classrooms with limited exposure to the concept of rhyme.  Exposure to nursery rhymes and rhyming books are becoming more limited in the home environment.  This makes the literacy journey even more challenging for these learners.  I have been spending a significant amount of time providing this exposure to my learners.  Below you will find activities that I have been employing to assist them.

 

Rhyming Books

Rhyming Books

My Favorite Rhyming Books

These are a few of my favorite rhyming books.  Allowing students to hear rhyme within literature selections is a significant step forward in developing the learner’s ability to distinguish rhyme.

1.  Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson – great to use with the Fall theme

2.  Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson – great to use for Halloween

3.  Sheep in a Jeep – by Nancy E. Shaw

4.  I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More – by Karen Beaumont

5.  Silly Sally – by Audrey Wood

6.  Llama Llama Red Pajama – by Anna Dewdney

7.  Llama Llama Misses Mama – by Anna Dewdney

8.  Rhyming Dust Bunnies – by Jan Thomas

9.  Jamberry – by Bruce Degan

10. Giraffes Can’t Dance – by Giles Anderae

11. There’s a Bear on My Chair – by Ross Collins

 

Rhyming Game

Spin-A-Rhyme Board Game

Rhyming Dictation

I have been working with small groups to develop their ability to hear rhyming words.  I dictate words that rhyme and those that don’t.  The students must acknowledge if the words rhyme or not by telling me “yes” or “no”.  I also dictate three words and the students must tell me which two rhyme.  In the link below you will find some examples that I have used.

 

Spin-A-Rhyme Board Game

This is a game I play in a small group setting.  I place a the spinner board in a paper plate and attach a spinner.  We discuss the pictures first.  Each student is given a small picture game card and bingo chips.  Each player takes a turn to initiate the spinner.  Each student decides which picture rhymes on their game card and places a bingo chip on the corresponding picture.  This is done as a group initially.  After, they play with partners.

 

Rhyming Matching Board Game 

This is another game I play in a small group initially. I copied and placed the rhyming pictures on poster board marked off with a grid. The students drew a card and placed the picture beside the rhyming match. (example:  clown and crown, ball and doll).

Rhyming Matching Game

Rhyming Matching Game

 

Word Work

Each day we print on our erasable whiteboards.  I introduce a word family and have the students only change the initial letter. They learn that this not only changes what the word says but also that all the words rhyme (examples:  cat, bat, mat, sat, etc.)

 

Rhyming Mini Unit – Special Deal Until End of November

This mini-unit is not offered as an individual purchase but is only available to members that purchase a membership.  For the month of October and November, I have decided to offer this as a single purchase (if you are an existing member, you will already be able to access this under the heading Literacy Centers).

Bear Snores On Literacy Math Unit

My goal for this coming year is to create more literature based mini-units based on specific literature selections.  The one I created over the December break was based on the

Color Version

Color Version

literature selection “Bear Snores On” by Karma Wilson.  I felt this would really correlate with the concept of hibernation and what animals do in the winter.

 

Shared Reading

This mini-unit includes an emergent reader that is a simple retelling of the literature selection.  It is offered in both color and black and white.  I use these readers for both shared and guided reading.  I project the color version on my Smart Board, enabling all the students to view the print.  I model the reading process on specific skills as outlined in the unit.  A page from the color version of the reader is displayed on the right.

 

Guided Reading

I would generally have five students within a group completing the guided reading activities outlined below.

There is a black and white version of the reader that I use for guided reading.  I always like to include an interactive component in each reader. The interactive component in this reader has the students cutting and pasting the correct animal that joined bear in his cave. The students are required to match the words found within the reader to those displayed on the picture.  It also requires them to apply what they know about beginning letters and sounds.

Black and White Version

Black and White Version

I like doing this during guided reading because each student finishes the interactive component at different times.  This allows me to have an individual student read the selection to me, once they have finished cutting and pasting the correct pictures.  During this time, I can assess what skills they have acquired.

 

Literacy Centers

I have four Literacy Centers with duplicate games. There are two to three playing partners at each center playing the same game.  The students would rotate to each center. The entire process takes around 30 to 40 minutes.

 

Literacy Center One – Letter and Sound Identification

The playing partners would take turns rolling a die.  They would move around the game board accordingly and print the initial letter sound represented on the picture that they landed on. They could use the dotted printing sheet provided. There are also picture playing cards that can be used.  The playing partners would take turns drawing a picture card and print the letter sound represented.  Again, the dotted printing sheet could be used.

Literacy Center Two – Rhyming Game

In this Center student partners take a turn spinning a top.  They will place a bingo chip or another object on the picture that rhymes on their game card.  Once their game card has been completed, the game is over.

Common Core Planning

After so many years of experience, I rarely create a lesson solely based on meeting curriculum outcomes. I found this often led to rather stilted lessons.  I prefer to create engaging lessons related to a specific topic or theme with related reading selections and follow-up activities.  From there, I would evaluate all the core outcomes that would be met from the lessons I developed.

 

Choosing A Topic or Theme

During the later part of October I like to focus on the theme of Pumpkins, which is used in conjunction to the Fall and Halloween themes.  The video below outlines how I employ integrated activities that meet many core outcomes related to this topic or theme.

Read Alouddownload

One of the reading selections chosen for this topic is How Many Seeds In A Pumpkin? written by Margaret McNamara.   This specific book is great to use for integrating math and literacy.  It addresses the math outcomes outlined below:

 

1.  size comparisons

2.  estimation

3.  one-to-one number counting correspondence

Pumpkin Counting Emergent Reader

4.  skip counting

 

The students can engage in the activities found in the book.

 

Shared and Guided Reading

There are a number of emergent readers found within the Fall/Halloween theme unit but the one I chose integrates math. In the black and white version of the reader “Down At the Pumpkin Patch”, the students were to draw the correct amount of pumpkins as identified in the text.  Both the number word and written as a numeral versions are available.

Interactive Component of Black and White Version of Reader

Interactive Component of Black and White Version of Reader

I display the color version of the reader on the Smart Board, which is used for shared reading.  During this time we count words, identify sight words and work on other related beginning reading skills.  During guided reading time the students work in a small group to complete the interactive component where they are required to draw and color the correct amount of pumpkins according to the text.  After they complete the interactive component, they read to me and a partner.

 

 Related Art/Craft Project

The students drew and colored with wax crayons their own pumpkin patch as displayed below. After, I washed over their picture using thin black paint.  The wax crayons resisted absorbing the paint.

Reading Readiness for Pre-Kindergarten

Research has shown that students who become readers are able to complete assessments successfully that include the skills outlined below.  It is important that students be systematically taught these skills within daily instructional time.

The Kinderplans program includes activities that focus on developing these skills.

Letter/Sound Isolation

Letter/Sound Isolation

Phonological and Phonemic Awareness

Phonological awareness is a broad term used where students exhibit the ability to hear and manipulate sounds. There is no connection in identifying specific letters but is exclusively based on the auditory component.  These skills are outlined below:

a)  Word detection is the ability to hear words within a sentence.  Dictate a simple sentence and have students identify each word.

Word Detection/Print Awareness

Word Detection/Print Awareness

b)  Syllable detection is the ability to clap or tap syllables within words.  This can also include compound words.

c)  Phoneme detection is the ability to hear sounds within words, for example, the word mat /m/a/t /has three phonemes.  In Kindergarten or Preschool the focus would be on hearing the initial sound first.  This would be followed by hearing ending and middle sounds.

Phoneme Detection Using A Puppet

Phoneme Detection
Using A Puppet

d)  Rhyme detection is the ability to identify rhyming pairs and also able to generate rhyming pairs.

Rhyming Picture Cards

Rhyming Picture Cards

e)  Syllable and phoneme blending is the ability to hear individual sounds and syllables and blend these back together to identify the related word.

Initial Sound Sorting Cards

Initial Sound Sorting Cards

 

Phonics

Is the ability to name letters and identify their related sounds.  If a child has developed good phonological awareness skills and is able to identify the letters of the alphabet and their related sound, they should be able to begin printing and reading simple CVC words by the end of Kindergarten.  There are 44 English phonemes but the Kinderplans program only focuses on 26 of them.  I teach the other phonemes in grade one.

 

44 phonemes

 

Print Awareness

The student is able to track words, move from left to right and top to bottom when reading.

Initial Sounds Sorting Workbook Page

Initial Sounds Sorting Workbook Page
Students cut a paste pictures representing
the initial focus sound.

 

Vocabulary Development

a)  The student has the ability to name objects, express feelings and actions.

b)  The student is able to complete an oral cloze activity (word deleted and able to generate one that makes sense).

 

All the examples displayed are

taken from the Pre-K curriculum.
