Now with more activities, these easy to implement activities are perfect for integrating interactive whiteboards into your early childhood instruction! The CD, designed for Grades PreK-2, supports content-area lessons with standards-based phonemic awareness and phonics activities in an engaging, visual, and interactive way designed to reach all learners. Designed to help students recognize the sounds that form familiar words, each activity concentrates on phonemes, the building blocks of language, and lets students practice matching those phonemes to illustrations of recognizable words. Students can manipulate objects as they experiment and simultaneously hear the sounds for those objects. As students see the relationships between the sounds that make up words, they form a better understanding of the spoken language, which leads to better reading comprehension. Activities focus on beginning sounds, rhyming, blending, and letter recognition. This resource supports the Common Core State Standards and supports core concepts of STEM instruction. The pack includes a Resource CD with 16 activities and a User's Guide.
