Peek In Our Classroom:

The Vowel Tree is a tactile, engaging way to teach and practice decoding words. This manipulative can be used with beginning readers to more advanced readers. Originally developed as a Montessori material, the vowel tree reinforces skills for all learners; tactile learners, auditory learners, and visual learners. To use the Vowel Tree: Have the child take two consonants from small pieces of paper . Place one consonant in front of the letter “a” and one after. Have the child say the word that is formed, combining the first two letters into one blended sound. Then have them slide the letters down to the next vowel and say the word. Continue all the way down the tree. For the purposes of this work, they can say a word even if it’s a “nonsense” word, just for the practice of saying the vowel sounds.

 

This is a sorting material found in the Sensorial are. There are nine compartments and nine colors (each color has a different shades). Each color gets its own compartment.

 

The Montessori Pink Series is a set of language cards that represent a CVC/ word and have a matching index card. The Pink Rhyming material uses three letter/short vowel sounds.

 

This child is working on the United States Puzzle Map. What she has done is trace the individual state/piece and is coloring and identifying the state.

Academic Enrichment | Week of April 8th | Tallmadge

Vowels and consonants: The students learned to recognize and distinguish vowels from consonants, which is an important step in the development of reading and writing skills. We talked about how all words contain at least one vowel. The students were quickly able to recognize the vowels, which is great because they will have a strong foundation for learning rules and spelling patterns for short and long vowels, final vowels, unaccented vowels, silent vowels and irregular spellings.

Cursive Handwriting: The students practiced writing the lowercase cursive words: last, frisk, grab, kid, hat and quest.

A peek into next week: Nouns and Verbs


A Peek into Reading Group | Tallmadge

The kindergartners listened to the poem Where Would You Be. It was about where you would want to be during a storm. They discussed how they felt about storms and where they would rather be. We also discussed how the speaker describes the storm and why he/she used those specific descriptors.

Throughout the story the group got to write down their thoughts about the poem, drew what the storm looked like, and even wrote their own poem about specific weather.

Here are the kindergartners writing their own poem.

A Peek Into Reading Group

The kindergarteners listened to the Tin Forest over the past two weeks.  The story was about an older man who lived outside a dump.  He was very lonely and dreamed that he lived in another place. One day he got the idea to create his own forest.  He built a forest made of tin.  Suddenly,  animals started to appear and real flowers and plants started blooming,  and the man never felt lonely again.

The kindergarteners participated in activities to enhance their comprehension skills.  They wrote about what they were wondering while they hard the story for the first time,  drew a  couple scenes from the story, and wrote about if they were the bird in the story,  would they return with their friend. For homework,  the group took home a piece of foil and got to create something just like the man from the story.  The foil creations are are hanging up in the hallway!  Make sure to check them out!
