Making Phonics Fun - Weekly Routine

So each week, we practice our words for the week... the same way each week. Kind of, anyway. It's the same "type" of skill....but it's different activities too.

Here's a run down of our activities:

Monday - Make a List Monday
On Mondays, we talk about our new phonics words...and what the rules are. Then we make a list on the chart paper....sometimes it's a cute picture, sometimes it's a bubble map, sometimes it's just a list. haha. 

Sometimes we make a list from a poem that I found that works for that week's skill.

And then for their seatwork that day, during centers, they make their own lists.  Sometimes it's on a fun craft....

Or maybe they are going to make a list from the poem we did together and then illustrate the poem.

Tuesday - Trade it Tuesday

This is a cooperative group strategy that we use in a LOT of different activities. I'm not really sure what it's called, because I've mixed and matched it. haha.

But they practice reading words with the phonics skills for the week and then trade it and move around to find a new partner.

The cards come from my phonics this one...

Wednesday - Walk the Room Wednesday

Wednesday's seatwork is to do "Walk the Room" I have a few different activities for this one. Sometimes I will take the cards we did for Tuesday's activity and hang them around the room - and the complete one of the walk the room activities from one of my phonics packs.

Sometimes it's a real/nonsense activity.

Thursday - Think About it Thursday

Thursday is all about them using their brainpower to think about things... like if it's a long or short sound...

or real or nonsense...

Friday - Fix-It Friday

They love Fridays. I make about 7-8 words all scrambled up and they cut them out, one at a time, and unscramble them...then write the words next to it.

A lot of these activities come from either my phonics packs - and I have them for pretty much ANY phonics skill you can think of for 1st and 2nd grade. Here's an example of what is included in most of them. You can check them out {HERE}.

I also do a lot of activities from my Real or Nonsense Packs. I have them for CVC, Blends, and 
Silent E right now, but I'll be working on the rest of the skills... 
I love using these for my RTI groups too!  Check them out {HERE}
