Sounding Out Activities

(View Complete Item Description)

In Sounding Out activities, students take a regular word, such as sat, produce the letter-sound pattern "sssaaat," and blend to produce the word sat. This is a crucial development in learning to read, bringing together skills that students have spent many weeks working on and providing the first excitement of reading unaided. Being able to sound out regular words also provides students with a self-teaching capability: they can decode unaided words they do not yet recognize on sight.

What factors are needed in order to get a good night's sleep?

(View Complete Item Description)

This lesson plan is a PBL (problem based learning) project. The students first took a survey to grab their attention, which informed them of their sleeping habits. Then the students began researching the question, "what factors are needed in order to get a good night's sleep?". The students will read a Time for Kids article, as well as research other articles, to discover new information about the topic. Based on what they learned, they will create an informative Piktochart that will be presented in class, displayed at the school fair, and hung around the school. Their final projects will ultimately help other students to achieve better sleeping habits!
