Happy Schedulin’ Sunday! This week we are continuing ABC BOOTCAMP to introduce letters and sounds! We’re also wrapping up Number Bootcamp, working with ten frames and cookies. We’re also kicking off our next research project all about community helpers!
Lesson Plans For Letters And Sounds, Ten Frames and Community Helpers
Here are our lesson plans for introducing letters and sounds and numbers! Click the image to download my lesson plans!
This week we are continuing ABC BOOTCAMP!!!! ABC BOOTCAMP is a research based, classroom proven approach to introducing letters and sounds. This is an intense and immersive experience in letters and sounds! We are continuing with our new order for ABC BOOTCAMP! We are currently 10 days into ABC BOOTCAMP and the growth I’ve seen in my students in just 10 days is amazing!
ABC BOOTCAMP starts with circle charts. This week we are learning B, L, K and U.
We also do handwriting for each letter. I explicitly model how to form each letter and the students practice writing the letter using the included handwriting sheets.
For each letter, we also make a silly hat! This is one of my favorite parts of ABC BOOTCAMP! The hats are great at re-inforcing letters and sounds and they also provide daily fine motor practice and cutting practice!
We have also using the newest piece of ABC BOOTCAMP: the sound hunt! These are a great small group tool to practice and reinforce the sound learned in the whole group lesson.
And we are using the new ABC BOOTCAMP decodable readers and alphabet books!
