Elastic Band Models: Phonemic Awareness Practice for ZERO COST!
Friday, April 13, 2012
Here are a few more examples of phonemic awareness models produced by stapling pieces of cardstock to elastic waistband material (see my April 11th post). You might also use velcro to stick on different pieces and make the models easily interchangeable. These are great for direct instruction and guided practice in segmenting and blending, plus they can be used effectively in centers, once students learn how they can be used. For ideas, see my Name Wall book and keep in touch--I'll post more details here. Thanks again for stopping by! Happy Friday! -j
I'm a full-time K-6 literacy coach in a Title I school. I've taught for 28 years in different parts of the country. I love learning every day alongside teachers and students. My passion for literacy teaching has led me to write a number of books for teachers on literacy practice, including the picture book series: STELLA WRITES. When I'm not teaching or writing, I love to present, consult and collaborate with other passionate educators across the nation. I'm also 'MOM' to one overly energetic young boy!
