Activity Type: Build Fluency
Activity Form: Standard
Grade: K, 1
Group Size: Small Group, Whole Class
Length: 5 minutes
Materials: Multiple copies of large letter cards (optional; print them here)
Goal: Given a printed letter combination, students can say its sound with automaticity (ai -> /ay/).
Items: All letter combinations learned so far

What to do

  1. Either write letter combinations learned so far in large letters on the board, or display letter cards on a surface so that all are visible.
  2. Call on a student to be the "Letter Leader." [Student's name] is our Letter Leader for today. When he or she points to a pair of letters, everyone has to say the correct sound. Ready?
  3. Let the Letter Leader continue for several letter combinations. Watch for students who say nothing and make a note in an Activity Log.
