Popplet and Pizza

You don't eat a whole pizza at once, in one bite and if you don't know a long word (multi-syllabic word) you don't try to read the whole thing at once. You break it down (slice it up like a pizza) and read it (eat it) bite by bite! It's gotta be in kid language so they get it! :) My groups in grades 1-3 need a lot of practice with breaking words into syllables to try to read them. The kids are interested in anything done on the iPads, of course. With this app, you can create as many Popplets, or boxes, as you need. My first grade groups needed to go back and do some more work on story events. Students did a quick sketch in each box to represent what they would write about on their B-M-E page. I can see we will be using Popplet a lot! Fluency. Fluency Passages Generator.

My personal opinion is that everyone learns differently -- try a variety of things with your kids until you find what works for them. My oldest daughter just sort of magically read books -- natural ability and lots of family reading time were the causes I think -- she didn't often sound out words or enjoy playing word games. My younger daughter was very keen on phonics lessons and constantly asked to play rhyming word games and activities. Word families really appealed to her and to this day (grade 6) she enjoys word based "puzzles" like word searches and crosswords (my eldest daughter would rather play soccer *grin*).

When approaching word families, I like to learn them in sets that have some commonality (for example, short a sounds or long e sounds). Anyways, here are the Word Family sets as I would suggest combining them. National Geographic Young Explorer (Student Magazine) - January-February 2009. Where Reading Is Fun!
