Context of the Activity: Graphic Organizer
Target Student Group: 1st grade, literacy
Instructions for students: Hi class! Today we are going to do some Jamboard word sorts with the sounds we’ve been learning. For the first sort, look at the picture and place it in the appropriate column. For example, if it is a picture of a dog, put the photo in the -og category. For the second sort, categorize the words with the long o sound into the -oi or -oy columns based on their spelling. For the final sort, look at the pictures and place them in the appropriate columns based on their spelling.
Goal for the Lesson: To help students practice phonics. It will help them connect the sounds in common words they know to the spelling of those words. The Jamboard helps meet this goal because students can move around the pictures and stickies to categorize them appropriately and practice their phonics knowledge.
