In this video, students join Super Readers as they help bake a cake by following directions. Students learn that the steps to baking are to get the ingredients, measure and mix, and then bake. With the assistance of Alpha Pig, the Super Readers are able to use their spelling skills to find the ingredients necessary to make the cake. Alpha Pig is able to identify the different ingredients on the shelf by looking for the first letter of the word.
Students engage in games and chants to recognize the same sounds in different words. Students match objects with the same beginning or ending sound, identify whether a given sound occurs at the beginning or ending of a word, and connect phonemes with graphemes.
In this lesson, students explore books and magazines for words that have the "ig" rime, in addition to brainstorming their own words. Furthermore, assessment is included as students incorporate learned words in context and isolation.
These activities provide examples of one-on-one student assessments that can be done informally in the classroom. Students will focus on the concepts of print as well as phonics.

This unit was created by the Rethink Education Content Development Team. This course is aligned to the NC Standards for Kindergarten ELA in Reading Foundational Skills.
This document provides a description of what each standard means a student will know, understand and be able to do. The "unpacking" of the standards done in this document is an effort to answer a simple question, "What does this standard mean that a student must know and be able to do?" and to ensure the description is helpful, specific and comprehensive for educators.

This assessment and remediation guide contains resources (lessons, worksheets, games, songs, progress monitoring, and more) to develop a student's phonological awareness by determining a student's need(s).
In this lesson, students will use a weekly poem to explore meaning, sentence structure, rhyming words, sight words, vocabulary, and print concepts. After studying the poem, students are given a copy of the poem to illustrate and share their understanding. All of the poems explored are then compiled into a poetry portfolio for students to take home and share with their families. To further connect home to school, a family poetry project is suggested.

Teach Your Monster to Read is a free online game that makes learning to read fun! It covers everything from letters and sounds to reading full sentences.
In this lesson, letter-sound correspondences are taught within a meaningful context in an explicit, systematic, and extensive manner. This lesson uses onset-rime analogy to present word families and spelling patterns. An onset is the consonant letter before the vowel in a given word or syllable, and a rime is the vowel and consonants that follow the vowel in a given word or syllable. Thus, in the word bill, the onset is the letter b and the rime is the letters ill. Furthermore, this lesson supports cooperative and integrative learning where students and teacher learn together and carry out tasks collaboratively.
