Kindergarten RTI: Letter-Sound Correspondence

Here's a great resource for helping your kindergarten and first grade students develop phonemic awareness and further their letter-sound correspondence! This is a go-to for teachers for RTI and is simple and easy to add into your intervention time.

A few weeks ago, I introduced you to an RTI pack that I made to help my sweet ELL babies master letter recognition.  I love having this go-to resource and not having to scramble over what I will do with them during small group time.   In addition to my binder full of activities for letter-recognition, I also tote around this plastic crate with me when I visit my kinder-kiddos: 003 I plan to make a separate post about what all I carry around in this bad boy, but I’m going to be adding an additional binder to it this week:  Letter-Sound Correspondence101 As we work through the alphabet and master recognizing our letters, it’s also important for students to make the connection between letters and their sounds.  Here’s how I’ll be using my new pack o’ fun… Each letter-sound session will start off with echo reading the focus letter, the sound and the picture. For example, “A /a/ apple. /a/ /a/ a/. A /a/ alligator. /a/ /a/ /a/. A /a/ astronaut. /a//a//a/.” I also have some motions that go with each letter to help my kinesthetic learners, and we’ll sort our Aa objects onto our mat. 102 Then, onto a little sound warm-up fluency.  Students will point to the letters and say the sounds. 103 Next, the students will help me generate words that begin with the /a/ sound.  You can add to the list each day, or make a completely new list each day.  104 The pack includes several other activities including… Picture Cards 105 Sound Discrimination Practice 106 Student Self-Assessment 107 Cumulative Teacher-Led Assessment 108 The pack includes detailed descriptions of the activities, a sample lesson plan, and suggestions for organizing your small group.  If you’d like to snag a copy, click the picture below! LetterSounds_COVER Oh yeah, the first person to correctly tell me why Iron Man is hanging out with the other letter A objects in the 3rd picture will win a free copy of this pack.  Be sure to leave your guess and an email address so I can send it to you!!!! Have a great day!!!!
