Today we continued talking about "r" controlled vowels in our phonics group. My personal favorite is "ar", because the kids all make funny pirate faces! LOVE IT! Today I just wanted to touch back on this skill that we covered last week, so we made flip books in our phonics center. SO EASY! WE LOVE FLIP BOOKS!
1. Fold paper hotdog style.
2. Cut front flap into 5 sections.
3. Label each section (ar, ir, er, ur, or)
4. Color code the vowels by sound.
ex. ar - orange
ir, er, ur - blue
or - green
5. Open one flap at a time and think of a word with that vowel sound and write inside the
flap. (For differentiation my higher groups wrote sentences with the words and some
used more than one matching vowel word. WOW!)
6. Draw a picture inside to go along with your sentence.
The kids really enjoyed this fun review! Favorite sentence of the day: "Her shirt is purple!"
Here is one picture of the kids on step 4.
This is the front of the flip book. (Color coded by sound)
This was one of my high group's flip book with sentences.
And the inside...
For differentiation, the lower group did words instead of sentences.
Making Homework OPTIONAL Is the Way to Go!
