Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Long a - Section 4: Partner Work


As I analyze the Tweet Board (work sample 2) sticky notes I notice that four students do not know the difference in long and short a. So, I am going to plan several small group lessons for those students. In the small group we will read and sort words with short and long a. They will identify the beginning, middle, and ending sounds in the words. Breaking the words down really help students learn the sounds in the words, and it develops their decoding skills.

In addition, we will read decodable readers for the long a patterns. Our reading series has a book we can print them from. I also am going to assign these students activities on the Classworks computer program to help them with long a.
