Lesson 5 - Setting the Purpose of the Skills Block

To learn more about this lesson, read the Lesson 5 Overview found under the Additional Materials tab.

Daily Learning Targets 

  • Opening A:
    • I can reflect on (think about) myself as a reader and writer.
  • Opening B:
    • Using evidence from the letter, I can add to my understanding of the author and her purpose.
  • Work Time A:
    • I can practice what I’ve learned.
    • I can listen to a list of words and identify which one does not rhyme.
    • I can listen to a list of three rhyming words and create a new rhyming word with a different sound.
    • I can count the syllables in a spoken word.
    • I can segment (break apart) and pronounce separate syllables in a spoken word.
    • I can blend separate syllables to form a spoken word.
    • I can blend onset and rime in a CVC word.
    • I can segment onset and rime in a CVC word.
    • I can add a specified phoneme (sound; example: /m/) at the beginning of a spoken rime (example: “-at”) that I hear, and then say the word.
    • When given a spoken CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) word (example: “man”), I can change the final phoneme (sound) to another (example: “n” to “p”), and then say the new word.
    • I can look at a letter in a word and say its sound.
    • I can identify the most common single graphemes (letters) for short vowels.
    • I can identify long and short vowel sounds in (single-syllable) words that I hear.
    • I can name the five vowel letters and explain that these are the long vowel sounds.
    • I can write a letter or letters for most consonant and short vowel sounds I hear.
    • I can use what I know about letters and their sounds to spell simple words.

In Advance

  • Prepare:
    • A system for randomly choosing leaders for the Step on Up activity in Opening A.
      • Example:
        • Jar with students’ names on individual sticks or pieces of paper.
    • “Open a Book, Unlock a Door” illustrations from Lesson 3 (if collected after that lesson).
    • Materials for Independent Work Rotations: paper, pencils, crayons, or other coloring materials; blank paper; books for independent reading; and glue sticks (to glue poems and song lyrics into Fluency Notebooks).
  • Cut apart the Review Cards.
  • Gather lyrics to any songs or words to other poems that students may be familiar with (for Fluency Notebooks).
  • Staple together blank pages into a booklet to be used as Fluency Notebooks (approximately 10–15 pages per booklet).

Vocabulary

  • Lesson-specific: blend, decode, segment, syllable

Materials

  • Mystery Letter #5 (one for teacher use)
  • Review Cards
  • Whiteboards (one per student) or blank paper in transparent sleeve and clipboards or other hard surface
  • Whiteboard markers (one per student)
  • Whiteboard erasers (or tissues, socks, etc.; one per student)
  • Fluency Notebooks (optional; for independent work)
