I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie. Since Unit 3 has 49 math centers, I found it helpful to split up the centers into 2 bins.

]]>The post How to Teach the Alphabet appeared first on Moffatt Girls.

]]>For that reason, I want to introduce you to the Alphabet Curriculum. It is a complete 7-week program that goes from letter recognition and formation to letter sounds to simple CVC words. It is packed with hands-on activities to keep young minds engaged as they learn, practice and master the alphabet.

Lesson plans

Assessments (Pre-Assessments, Mid-Assessments, Post Assessments). Students will be grouped by score for targeted centers and small group instruction.

Scope and Sequence

Whole group lessons

Differentiated small group lessons

Hands-on centers

Extra practice for additional support

Sample Schedules for 90 minutes, 70 minutes and 40 minute blocks

The lessons are organized in the following layout:

- Week 1- Letters a, p, b, t
- Week 2- e, d, f, v
- Week 3- i, m, n, r
- Week 4- o, c, s
- Week 5- u, q, j, l
- Week 6- g, h, k, z
- Week 7- w, y, x

Although the lessons are organized in this way, you can always choose to introduce and teach the letters in a different order. You can also teach them at a different pace. If you feel that you students need more time, you can stretch the lessons over 14 weeks or more.

This is a frequent question posed by teachers, and for a good reason: it is important to teach the alphabet in with a systematic approach. Keep in mind that there is no “correct” order to teach the alphabet. Furthermore, you don’t necessarily have to teach it from A – Z. However, by using the order listed above, you are able to **make words quickly**. For example, by the end of week 1, students will be able to move on from letters to simple CVC words. In week one alone, students will be able to use their letter sound recognition to make and read the words: pat, bat, tab, and tap. **What a confidence booster! **

Are you ready to change the way you teach the Alphabet? No more boring and monotonous letter activities. This Alphabet Curriculum provides explicit instruction in a variety of ways with context and structure! This packet provides students with **hands-on and engaging activities!**

**Lesson Plans: **Included in the curriculum are easy-to-follow daily lesson plans to help guide your teaching for whole group and small groups. They are complete with sample schedules, center activities and rotations, teacher table small groups activities for your low, standard (mid) and extension (high) groups and so much more!

**Weekly Letter Activity Centers/Rotations: **The weekly activities for center rotations include hands-on activities for letter identification, letter formation, letter sounds and letter review and application. Here are just a few of the activities in action.

Letter Sorting…

Magazine Letter Hunt…

Upper and Lowercase Spin and Cover…

Upper and Lowercase Letter Match…

Play Dough Mats…

Open-ended Letter Formation…

Shape Building…

Roll and Trace/Write a Letter…

Beginning Sound Cover up…

Beginning Sound Spin and Cover…

Beginning Sounds Letters…

These activities are broken down into low, medium and high groups in the lesson plans. You will want to prepare **Alphabet Toolkits** for each student at the table. You only need one set that will be used with each group of students. For example, if you have 5 students at a time at the “**Teacher Table**“, you will need to prepare 5 sets. These 5 sets will be used for all three groups. Listed below are the resources that you will include in each Toolkit.

The lesson plans clearly indicate which activities should be used in each group.

The Beginning Sounds Poster comes in a full size and mini size…

Here are a list of items that you might find helpful when building your Alphabet Curriculum toolkit:

- Magnet letters
- Binder rings
- Popsicle sticks
- Jumbo foam dice
- Game spinners
- Pattern blocks
- Snap cubes

Most of these items can be found on my Amazon Influencer Page: Click Here.

Too often, we expect a child to learn how to read on “our schedule.” If we don’t allow the student the time needed for their brains to produce the anticipated information, we impede the learning process. If a child is not saying the letter sound or word, count to 10 silently in your head. You may find that all they needed was a little bit more time to come up with the information. Furthermore, this 7-week curriculum can easily be expanded over 14 weeks or more to accommodate struggling students.

Too much focus on letter names can confuse a child when it comes to sounding out a word. For example, for the word cat, the student may refer to the letters by their name instead of the sounds that the letters make, saying c-a-t instead of /c//a//t/.

Even after a student has shown that he or she can identify a letter or word, continue to have them practice it in many different ways. In the Alphabet Curriculum, I’ve included a variety of practice activities to ensure that students have ample opportunity to truly master the skills.

- Letters b, d, p and q- These letters are frequently confused when learning how to read. These letters, and some others, may require more practice than the rest of the alphabet.
- Speech delays- It is important to remember that speech is also continuing to develop at these young ages. If a child consistently gets a letter wrong, check to make sure that they can first make the sound of the letter before asking them to identify it.
- Dyslexia, vision and other contributing factors- Keep in mind that there are multiple factors that contribute to a child’s reading success.

Once a child has mastered the alphabet, you can move on to building fluency reading CVC Words and basic Sight Words. Here are a few Bundles to consider:

- CVC Endless Mega Bundle: This is a bundle of CVC resources that will continue to grow. This bundle provides engaging hands-on resources for
**extra practice**. Many students need a lot of practice when it comes to beginning phonics. - CVC Fluency Bundle: This bundle of resources includes 12 packets that take students from sounding out CVC words to reading simple passages.
- Sight Word Fluency Pyramid Sentences: This bundle helps students build fluency with sight words along with phonics skills starting with pre-primer sight words and CVC words.

]]>The post CVC Words appeared first on Moffatt Girls.

]]>**WHAT ARE CVC WORDS?**

CVC words are words that follow a consonant-vowel-consonant pattern, such as cat, bed, pig, dog, and run. They contain a short vowel in the middle.

**WHY TEACH CVC WORDS?**

By teaching CVC words, we lay a strong foundation for phonics. We give children the tools they need to break the reading code. Phonics is the connection between graphemes (letter symbols) and sounds. When we teach phonics **systematically** and **directly**, students are able to build a foundation that adds to their reading tool kit. CVC words are the **first set of reading instruction** that a child will need to master to become a fluent reader.

**CVC BIG ENDLESS BUNDLE: The Bundle that Keeps on Giving!**

I wanted to create a **bundle of resources** that would help students practice and master CVC words in a variety of hands-on, fun and engaging ways! The **CVC BIG Endless Bundle** turns reading into a game while giving students multiple opportunities to practice decoding, reading, and spelling CVC words! This bundle of CVC resources is a “**special**” bundle that will continue to grow, and grow and GROW! Once you buy into this special bundle, you will get all the updates for** FREE at NO ADDITIONAL cost**! Each time a new resource is added to the bundle, the price goes up! The earlier you buy into the bundle, the better. The packets in this bundle can be used for** literacy centers, homework, small group, guided reading, extra practice, early finishers **and** more**!

**What Packets are Currently Included in the CVC BIG Endless Bundle?**

**Packet #1**: **CVC Word List Cards**

These **CVC Word List Cards** provide students the reading practice they need with their newly learned phonics skill. The format is fun, engaging and gives students a sense of success as they move through the lists. The words are large enough so that students don’t feel overwhelmed when reading a list of CVC words. Add some letters and let students read and BUILD CVC words. You can grab the magnetic letters HERE. Watch their confidence soar as they hear themselves read entire lists of words!

**Packet #2:** CVC Segmenting and Blending

**Segmenting and Blending Cards** provide students the opportunity to **isolate (segment)** individual sounds (phonemes) within words and** blend** them together. Each CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) word on the card has three dots and an arrow. Sometimes it is difficult for beginning/struggling readers to sound out words because they are so close together. However, the dots help students isolate each sound and the arrow helps them to blend the sounds together to form a word.

*****50 Cards Included/ 600 Words within the set*****

Packet #3:

**Packet #3:** Fluency Sentences

These **CVC Fluency Sentence Cards** allow students the reading practice they need with their newly learned phonics skills. The format is fun and engaging, and it gives students a **sense of success.** The words are large enough so they don’t feel overwhelmed when reading the sentences. Each card includes a simple starter sentence comprised of sight words and CVC words. The repetition in the starter sentences helps students focus on fluency and reading a CVC word in context. Students read the sentence and then circle the picture that matches the CVC word. *****50 Cards Included*****

**Packet #4: Word Searches **

**CVC Word Search **cards are a fun way for students to sound out and find CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words in a word search! Since most kids love word searches, this is a great way to keep the reading process fresh and exciting!

Each Word Search card has only 6 words for students to find. The large letters in a simple font helps students from becoming overwhelmed. Each word list will focus on a short vowel CVC word (a, e, i, o, and u). The remaining lists will be a mixed review. In the list below, students will find the words fan, bat, cat, map, ham and bag in the word search. *****50 Cards Included*****

**Packet #5: CVC Type it Out!**

**CVC Type it Out** allows students to practice reading, sounding out and typing CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words. Students read the CVC word in the word bank at the top of the card and then type out the word on their keyboard.

You can easily turn this activity into a **more engaging center** by adding a real keyboard! Place a card on the keyboard and let students type each word. This hands-on and engaging way of practicing CVC words will make learning exciting! Watch this center become a favorite with your students!

This set of CVC Type it Out cards starts out with single word families or short vowels and then moves onto a mixed review. Typing out the word families is sure to help build confidence, and the mixed review will help build accuracy. *****50 Cards Included*****

**Packet #6: CVC Stretch it Out!**

**CVC Stretch it Out** is a great way to support beginning/struggling readers. Students see a picture of a CVC word. They color the beginning, medial and ending sound by stretching out the word. Next, student write the word on the lines or in the box. There are **2 versions of these cards**. The first version has lines to assist in writing the words neatly. The second version has an open box for students who do not need the lines or for stamping out the words. **Each version has 50 cards. **The cards are broken down in short vowel sounds for building confidence and mixed review cards for practicing accuracy. The mixed review cards provide students with more of a challenge as they are required to hear each sound. *****2 Sets at 100 Cards Included*****

**Packet #7: CVC Gumballs!**

CVC Gumballs is a fun way for kids to practice spelling and writing CVC words! Students identify the gumballs that match the word family written at the top, write the words on the lines and color or cover the gumball if they spell it correctly. There are 43 games in this set. The cards progress from individual word families (19 total word families) to help build confidence to a mixed review of 24 cards to help build fluency and reading accuracy.

**Packet #8: CVC 5 in a Row**

**CVC 5 in a Row** turns reading into a game! For this game, students can play by themselves or with a partner. They roll a die, read the CVC word that matches their roll, and then cover a picture to match. If playing with a partner, the first person with 5 in a row, wins! If students play by themselves, the game is over once they have 5 in a row.

There are **50 games** in this set. The cards progress from individual word families (22 total word families) to help build confidence to a mixed review of 28 cards to help build fluency and reading accuracy.

**Packet #9: Spin and Write**

**CVC Spin and Write** works with CVC word families. Word families, also know as phonograms (chunks) can make the reading process easier for some students. Students learn to hear and read familiar patterns in word families quickly and fluently. Teaching word families can also help children recognize spelling patterns.

The CVC Spin and Write Set works with **32 individual word families**. They allow students to focus on reading and spelling one word family at a time.

Most students love to play games. Word family activities/games are a great way to reach all types of learners. In the CVC Spin and Write game, students use a paperclip and pencil to spin the word family and write the word family on the line. Each card allows students to write 10 words for each word family.

**Packet 10: Spin and Cover**

**CVC Spin and Cover** works with word families. Word families, also know as phonograms (chunks) can make the reading process easier for students. Students learn to hear and read familiar patterns in word families quickly and fluently. Teaching word families can also help children recognize spelling patterns.

Since this game works with** 2-4 word families at a time**, it is best that this activity is introduced to students who have had plenty of opportunities to practice word families one at a time. Most students love to play games. Word family activities/games are a great way to reach all types of learners. In the CVC Spin and Cover game, students use a paperclip and pencil (or a spinner) to spin the word family. They find a picture that matches the word family they spin. This packets includes 40 Spin and Cover Cards! A **master list** is provided for all sets.

**Packet #11: Box it Up**

**CVC Box it Up** helps students spell CVC words. After learning how to sound out CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words, beginning and/or struggling readers need opportunities **to spell CVC words**. The CVC Box it Up set has **two versions** in this packet! The first version has a word bank for student support, and the second set is without a word bank for more independent practice.

Since beginning readers must master phonics skills, the one-to-one sound boxes help build spelling and phoneme segmentation fluency.

**Packet #11: Decodable Sentences**

**CVC Decodable Sentences **is a simple way to build CVC fluency and confidence in reading full sentences. These simple sentences give students the opportunity to practice reading CVC words along with simple sight words by applying decoding skills of segmenting and blending.

There are **159 cards (2 versions)** in this packet. The cards are broken down into **3 sets**, with three-word, four-word, and 5-word sentences. Each sentence is broken down into CVC words and basic sight words. The CVC words have 3 dots to help students segment (isolate) the sounds and an arrow to help students blend (combine) the sounds into a word. The segmenting and blending dots provide beginning readers with the structure and support they need to build confidence and fluency when sounding out words. The sight words have one dot to indicate that these are words that we do NOT sound out, but rather read on demand.

Packet #12: CVC Word Builders

**CVC Word Builders **

CVC Word Builders is a fun, hands-on way to practice word families and mixed review of CVC words. There are a total of **50 sets **of cards included in this packet. Each card contains 3-4 CVC pictures, to build a total of **194 CVC **words!

Students say the name of the picture and use letters to build the CVC word.

There are 50 pages in this set with 194 words.

These cards can be used for guided **reading warm-ups, small group work, homework, **and** more!**

For each page, there is a grade level standard attached so you know **EXACTLY** what you are covering! You can feel confident that **ALL** the standards for Second Grade are being covered!

I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.
