You no longer have to just make a choice between ketchup or mustard, now you also have to make the choice between print or digital resources for teaching! Of course, you can always have both!
You need to match resources with the best ways to engage your learners, whether you’re teaching them face to face and socially distanced or teaching them virtually.
I initially made only 2 face masks, thinking the need would be short-term. Likewise, I waited, hopeful, that all students would be physically back in school this fall with print resources in hand. Now, I’m trying to catch up!
I’ve got the fabric. I just need to make time to sew more masks.
I’ve got the print resources. I just need to start creating more digital versions.
Take a look at this blog post, How to Build in Support to Decode CVC Words, to learn about my Blend to Read CVC Words With Keyword Pictures. It is a set of 180 printable word cards. The word cards are designed to support beginning or struggling readers as they learn to decode CVC words in kindergarten and first grade.
You’ll also find a link in the blog post for a free sample with short a CVC words so you can decide if this resource is a good fit for your students.
Here’s the new, just completed, digital version, Blend to Read Take a Peek CVC. It is a set of 100 CVC words for use with Google Slides™.
There is one three-letter short vowel word without consonant blends or digraphs on each slide. All of the words can be represented by an image. This resource includes 20 short a, 20 short e, 20 short i, 20 short o, and 20 short u words.
How Can I Use This Digital Resource?
Present the slides during instruction with your whole class or in small groups. Or assign them as an independent practice to individual students.
Select, reorder, and delete the slides, as needed, to meet the instructional needs of your students.
How Do My Students Interact With the Slides?
Just like the print version, there is a keyword picture for easy reference above each letter to assist your students with letter-sound correspondence.
There is a dot below each letter. Students say the sound that each letter represents, using the keyword picture only as needed. They can move the pointing finger as they do this.
Then, they blend the sounds together to read the word.
Finally, they can take a peek by dragging the sticky note off the image and checking to see if they successfully decoded the word.
