How do you teach phonics in your class :
short vowels,a,e,i,o,u, phonics , beginning consonants, ending consonants, short vowel a, short vowel e, word families at, an, et, est, ed, hard g, sight words?
Sounds are really important in teaching a language. If they don’t know how to pronounce a word, how can they use the target language? As in every subject, phonics teaching should be enjoyable and effective. Do they like dancing? Use it! Do they like stories? Use it! Do they like coloring? Use it! You already know what your classroom likes. So do not beware of using different techniques in your classroom. It is not “wasting time”, it is “using the time suitably” . And we all want it 🙂
No matter how you teach the phonics, try these techniques in your classroom.
TRY COLORING PAGES
Here it is an example of a phonics story book ;
USE PHONICS STORIES
USE THE PHONICS CIRCLE MAT
(You can even make it on your own, by pasting the flashcards on the floor with transparent dc fix )
You may tell a rhyme to repeat the new phonics words. Such as;
Princess Sheriff walks up down
one,two,three,for,five sit down.
When they sit on a card, they pronounce it.
Or you may open a music, when you stop the music they sit on a card and pronounce it.
You may use rolls. Such as;
Which techniques you use in the class,do not forget they are your students and anyone else cannot know them better than you 🙂
