Hello, my name is Greg.
I see this might be time sensitive.
Do you still need this answered?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I need it by the tonight if possible. It really is a short assignment, I just won't have computer access later on. If you could just make sure it has a reference or two and is original because it does need to be turned in to a website that checks for originality. Can you help please? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oh yes I forgot to mention, this is a collaborative assignment and someone else is doing the same project as I am. Therefore, I need to make sure it not like hers. This is what she posted for her work so I need to make it like this but with different activities. Thanks...
PHONEMIC AWARENESS
“RHYMING GAME”-Pick a single syllable word such as “cat” and then take turns with your child staying words that rhyme with “cat” such as hat, bat, fat, sat, mat, etc. When the child can no longer think of “cat” rhyming words change the word and start again. Making sure to take turns picking the word and alternating turns saying rhyming words.PHONICS
“GO-FISH” – This is a creative game that is a fun way to practice various phonics skills with your children. To play, have a deck of go fish cards. Hand each player eight cards. Give them instructions based on the phonics skill you want to focus on “beginning sound, ending sound, etc.” Example: Ask your child if he/she has a card that begins with the ____ sound. The child will then look for a card with the corresponding sound. If they do not have the card, they say “go fish” and the person draws a card from the fish pond.FLUENCY
“READ TO YOUR CHILD” – The most effective way you can influence your child’s fluency skills is by reading aloud with them at home. Have your child pick out a book (even if it is the same book night after night) and read it aloud together. Your child will look forward to this time with you and he/she will be learning to read more fluently at the same time.VOCABULARY
“WORD WALK” – Similar to a cake walk at a party, all you need is some music (age appropriate), some note cards (sheets of paper will also work), a marker and your child’s vocabulary for that week. Write each vocabulary word on a separate sheet of paper and place them in a circle on the floor. Instruct your child to walk around the circle on each word while the music plays. When the music stops, have your child tell you what word they are standing on and its meaning (if applicable). You can even extend this activity and ask your child to use the word in a sentence. This activity gets your child moving around, learning their vocabulary while increasing their understanding of vocabulary while having fun!READING COMPREHENSION
“READERS THEATER” – This activity is a “dramatic presentation of a written work in script form” (Teaching Heart, 2008). Have your child read from a script using voice and expressive gestures. Lines do not need to be memorized and costumes do not need to be designed and worn. With Reader’s Theater, students have the opportunity to read, re-read, and read again their scripts as they practice them before performing the written piece. This improves fluency as well as comprehension of text.
The following is a website that has multiple stories ready for students to use in Reader’s Theater. www.teachingheart.net/readerstheater.htm
