Wondering what people's phonics block looks like. Do you do the same thing everyday, a different activity the same day each week. (ex: Monday you always do one thing, Tuesday you do one thing--and just change words)

And how long do you spend on it daily?


Thanks!!

we have a 15-20 min phonics block. I like to integrate phonics into shared reading. Before reading I do whole group phonics min-lesson w/sts. Something diff everyday. I use Fontes & Pinnell phonics lesson resource for instruction. It contains lots of good lessons in there. :0)

I have 2 40 minute blocks of language. The first block I spend the first 10-20 min discussing the letter of the week. This is what it looks like
Monday: Introduce the letter - Our busiest day (about 20 minutes - including stretch breaks)
1. write the letter on the board using proper printing techniques (I use the Handwriting without tears teachers manual, but not the program). We practice air writing both upper and lower case letters
2. I use Jolly Phonics to teach the letter sounds. I tell the story that goes with the letter and teach them the sound and the action.
3. I use half flip chart papers with the letter in the middle and the students come up with words that start with that letter. I write them on the chart and draw a pic to go with it - if possible.
4. Independent practice printing page (jolly phonics sound sheet)

Tuesday:
-Review the letter sound and independent printing practice page.

Wednesday: Starfall letter sheet printing practice and colouring

Thursday: Playdoh letters

Friday: Our catch up day - We have very high absence rates at our school so whatever was not done through out the week gets done all day Friday.

I am looking for suggestions on this too - I would love to hear what other people do! This is such a great question!

On Monday, I teach a principle from F&P. I state the principle, model the activity (usually a sort related to the principle) and then we debrief. On Tuesday, the children do the sorting activity again independently or with a buddy. As a group, we use shared reading to connect to the principle. On Wednesday, the kids sort again, maybe a blind sort or write the words instead of just sorting-using a white board. I model the sort on a pocket chart, but I make mistakes and the kids have to correct me. On Thursday, they glue the sort down on paper. If the sort was a picture sort, they try to label the pictures using best-guess spelling. On Friday, I teach a game to reinforce the learning and the game goes into a learning center for the next week. This provides lots of repetition and mastery of the lesson. Those that need intervention get it the next week.
