I absolutely love using books to teach phonological awareness skills to my kindergarten and first graders! I love the idea of using words right from the text to play with. Pretty soon, I am going to be starting up with my kindergarten intervention groups again. I will work with 5-6 students specifically on phonological awareness skills. So, I thought that this would be a great time to start getting some more of my phonological awareness activities together. Here is my latest phonological awareness book companion! It is a companion to the book If You Take A Mouse To School by Laura Numeroff.
There are five different activities in this packet, and also a new feature of my book companions which is four worksheets that do not require any prep on your part except for printing.
How Many Syllables?- Students count the number of syllables, and use Do-A-Dot markers to complete the activity. (4 worksheets)
Blending Syllables- Students listen to two syllables, and state the word that they hear. (18 cards and game board)
Recognizing Rhyme- Students listen to two words, and then state if the two words rhyme. (24 cards and 2 mats)
Generating Rhyme- Students are given a word, and asked to state a rhyming word. (27 cards and roll it rhyme it, keep it game board)
The next part of this packet is something that I am pretty excited about. I am going back and including these in all of my old phonological awareness packets also. There are four worksheets that target four different areas: rhyming, beginning and ending sounds, segmenting and blending syllables, and segmenting and blending phonemes. Here is a preview of one of the worksheets:
Just print the sheet, get out your book, and you are ready to go!
