Icky, icky i
 

Beginning Reading

Virginia Collins

 

Rationale:

Letters represent many different sounds.  These sounds are called phonemes.  Children need to be able to recognize letters and their phonemes in order to become fluent readers. The purpose of this lesson is to teach children to recognize the letter i, and its phoneme, /i/.  Children will participate in a tongue twister, a letterbox lesson, correspondence games, and a shared reading to learn that i=/i/.
