Today's blog will focus on the song "I Know My Vowels" from Growing Dendrites with Kathy Griffin (c) Copyright 2011. These multimedia files work much better than Power Point files because you have more control over the file and the interactive writing on the board.
|Multimedia File for the Smart Board, Interactive Whiteboard (IWB), or Computer|
|Teaching Points Page at the End of the Multimedia File|
Use as a whole group activity or as a literacy station
You can purchase this multimedia file at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Want books for independent reading for your students' book boxes? The listening center? As a homework song folder? Purchase the book set at my TPT store.
While you are there, you can also purchase the mp3 version of the song to place in the listening center or on an iPod, and take a look at the I Know My Vowels Activity Game Pack with many games/activities to support the song. I have included a flag in this pack for your students to decorate. My students carry their flag as they march around the room to the song or multimedia file. We spin in a circle when the cheerleader spins. And of course, we cheer with the vowels too. After the students get used to this activity, we bump it up and go on vowel hunts with our flags to use as an anchor support. The students record their words in their word books. When we have made this a secure goal, I send the flags home with the students for a home-school connection.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
Thanks for stopping by!
