Sound Work Station Materials
I couldn’t remember if I had shared these ideas before or not…I got them from Debbie Diller at the workshop she presented in March (ISRA). I’m making them now and using them in Puzzles and Games and ABC Work Stations. Next year, I ‘ll be making a Sound W
The children use items stored in a pencil box and match them with the appropriate letter that each item begins with. I store additional items in a plastic hardware drawer unit (each drawer is labeled with a letter). If you don’t have an item for the letter, just use several magnetic letters (upper and lowercase and different font styles) until you find something. This activity will be introduced later this week to the whole class and will be then placed in the Puzzles and Games Work Station.
In addition to this activitiy, I created a Word, Write, Spell sheet:
The children use this sheet to help them learn sight words. Before using this sheet it needs to get laminated so it can be reused. They are provided with cards (business sized cards) with the sight words printed on them (also laminated). The children place five word cards on the left hand side of the page. They then use a dry erase marker to write the words on the lines provided and then spell the words with magnetic letters. I will begin using the page as soon as our laminating machine is repaired. It needs to be printed on 11 x 17 sized paper.
