Lesson Plan: I Spy a Word
A great way to reinforce the sounds of letters that your young child may be learning while reading is to take a few moments after you are done reading and ask them to think or find things within the room that starts with the letter. For example, if you are learning the sound that "P" makes, then ask her: "what words can you think of that start with letter "P" or ask him "can you find something in the room that starts with the letter "P"?" Write down as many words that you and your child can come up with. Another great thing to do is to help them think of words that they themselves say during the day to make the letters even more relative! Sometimes while you are talking, you or they may say a word that starts with the desired letter, and when you do, make it exciting, and point it out!
Once you have a list of words, you can use the words on your list and practice spelling and writing them for another lesson!
