- Make short simple sentences with two letter words
Children’s knowledge of letters is a strong predictor of their success in learning to read.
I don’t believe in children cramming words. They can cram sight words. But, you can’t introduce sight words to children who are not reading. Sight words are meant to facilitate reading. So, what does a child who is not reading, need sight words for?
In this lesson, you say a word————-still two letter words———- and ask the kids to
spell it following the sounds they hear.
In the last lesson, you write the word and they sound it. Now, you sound the word, they spell it by giving you the letters.
of———– which letter sounds /o/ they will say letter o, which letter sounds /f/, they
will say letter f. So, spell o—f. They will say——- o -f= of
if————- which letter sounds /i/, they will say letter i, which letter sounds /f/, they
will say letter f. So, spell i-f, they will say i-f = if.
(Sound as many two letter words as you can. This should be a continuous exercise. This topic may not be discussed again in this class, but the teacher should continue with it introducing different letters.)
The topic is presented step by step
The class teacher revises the previous topics
He introduces the new topic
The class teacher allows the pupils to give their own examples and he corrects them when the needs arise
- Write out five 2 letter words
- Sound out the sound of the two letter words that you have written out
- Say the sounds of the letters of the alphabet
- Make sentences with two letter words
The class teacher goes round to make sure that the pupils are actually writing and he or she corrects them when and where the need arises
