Lesson 7 - Chaining

To learn more about this lesson, read the Lesson 7 Overview found under the Additional Materials tab.

Daily Learning Targets 

  • Opening A:
    • I can segment and blend CVC words with the phonemes (sounds): /p/, /a/, /k/ (as “c”), /r/, /g/, /n/, and /s/
    • I can say a three-phoneme word and segment (break apart) into individual phonemes (sounds) in order.
    • I can blend three phonemes to form a spoken word.
  • Opening B:
    • I can write the graphemes (letters) that match the phonemes (sounds): “p,” “c,” “a,” “r,” “n,” “g,” “s.” 
    • I can write the letter or letters for most of the consonant sounds I hear.
    • I can write the letter or letters for most of the short vowel sounds I hear.
    • I can look at each consonant and say its sound.
  • Work Time:
    • I can read and spell VC and CVC words with the phonemes (sounds): /p/, /a/, /s/, /g/, /n/, /r/. 
    • I can decode regularly spelled one-syllable words by mapping graphemes and phonemes.
    • I can read words with an “-s” ending.
    • I can use what I know about common spelling patterns to correctly spell words with those common patterns.

In Advance

  • Prepare:
    • Letter Formation Chart with visuals
    • Snapshot Assessment (optional)
  • Gather Materials for differentiated small group instruction (see Differentiated Small Groups: Work with Teacher).

 Digital Materials Preparation:

  • Prepare to display the lesson.

Vocabulary

  • Lesson-specific: blend, decode, proficient

Materials

  • Letter Formation Chart (from Lesson 6; for teacher reference)
  • Whiteboards (or sheet protectors with white cardboard inside; one per student or for partners)
  • Whiteboard markers (one per student)
  • Whiteboard erasers (or tissues, socks, etc.; one per student)
  • Movable Letters (magnetic letters, Letter Cards in a pocket chart, or other letters that can be displayed and moved; one each for teacher modeling: letters in nap, rap, gap, gaps, naps; from Lesson 6)
  • Snapshot Assessment (optional; one per student)
  • Materials for differentiated small group instruction (see Differentiated Small Groups: Work with Teacher)
