How do these spelling slides help students?
As we teach our students to decode words with new phonics patterns, we also need to teach our students how to encode those same words. When we have students encode, we are strengthening their phoneme-grapheme connections. These slides are split up by phonics pattern, follow a sequential scope and sequence, and allow students to practice spelling independently. Because these slides are separated by skill, you can easily differentiate by assigning students only the skill(s) they need to review.
How do you use these in the classroom?
These slides are available pre-loaded into both Seesaw and Google Slides so you can assign them to your students based on what you use. Once assigned, students will work to complete the 10 slides in their assignment. On each slide students will follow these directions:
- Say: look at the image and say the word aloud. In Seesaw, I like to have them record their voice using the microphone feature.
- Build: students will need to drag the letter tiles over in the correct order to build the word in the sound boxes under the image.
- Write: students will then either write the word using the pen tool in Seesaw or they can type the word in the text box in Google Slides.
