I am all about making phonics engaging and relatable. I mean, how many different sounds are in the English language? Too many for my adult brain to even get sometimes. I can’t imagine how overwhelming it is for my kiddos.
I like to start each phonics skill with something catchy for the kids to apply the sound to. Sometimes its a visitor, dressing up, play on words, or anything fun. Last week we had so much fun exploring the short oo sound that I had to make this week’s learning of long oo just as exciting.
And, of course doctors have to make their rounds when they are in the clinic, so the kids made their rounds and visited several patients. Some patients needed help with rhyming words, some with missing letters and some with sounds.
Day 2, we sorted through healthy and sick words. Any words with long double-o-itis went into the kiddo’s Book of Boo Boos.

Andy Grammer Something about kids singing “Don’t Give Up On Me” hit me right in the damn chest. Either I’m an over dramatic emotional artist or this just is as stupid powerful as it felt. Thanks for letting me join you Gregg Breinberg (PS22 Chorus Director) ... See MoreSee Less
