LA Learning Ideas and Links

How can you help increase your youngster's word family skills?  Try one or more of these ideas listed below!

1.  An Envelope of Words:   To encourage your child to practice letter patterns, write the words on paper and cut each letter apart.  Place the letters in an envelope, and label it with the word family.  Then ask your child to build words.  Your child could also write the words he/she makes on paper, chalkboard, markerboard, etc.  This activity can be extended to making sentences and cutting them apart to rebuild.

2.  Scrabble Pieces:   Use letter tiles from your Scrabble game to build words.  When your child makes a word,  math facts could also be practiced.

3.  Nursury Rhymes/Dr. Seuss books:  Place small sticky notes over words in the story that contain word chunks.  Let your child play a guessing game and guess what spelling patterns/words belong it the space.  Lift the stick note to check your answer.

4.  Magnetic Letters:  Invite your child to use magnetic letters to build words on the refrigerator.

5.  Texture Writing:    Ask to child to make words by using a variety of textures:  Play-Doh, shaving cream, sand, markers, chalk, crayons, finger paint, waterpaint, etc.

Any games that are used to practice these words such as:  BINGO, Word Search, etc. would be a great way to practice.  Most importantly, READ!  Share books with your child every day.  After reading a story for enjoyment, challenge your child to search in the text for word families he or she knows.

Great websites for additional practice can be found below.

Kindergarten Sight Word Review List

Click here for a list of the kindergarten sight words. These words are reviewed the first two weeks of school. After those first two weeks we will begin to learn new spelling and high frequency words. Review these words with your child to assist them with their foundational skills at the start of the year. 





Sound Pronunciation

*Coming Soon!* I will be providing audio of the correct way to pronounce letter sounds. This audio will provide a description of the parts of the mouth used to articulate each sound.

 Handwriting Help

You may visit this helpful handwriting site to provide your child a visual of letter formation. The helpful spider models correct formation as he writes the letter. This site also provides an opportunity for your child to put their mouse skills to the test. He/she may try writing their letters using the mouse. Please keep in mind, this does not necessarily assist with writing as it is asking the child to utilize different muscles to form the letter.
