Learning to Teach With Technology

Experiencing technology for the first time!

What standard are you using as a target of focus this semester? How can you link activities for different learning styles to this standard?

on May 28, 2013

At this time, I am most interested in teaching Kindergarten. With my background being a Speech-Language Pathologist, I have a passion that has developed for literacy. I understand that kids need the foundational phonological and phonemic awareness skills in order to learn how to read. I believe that I can teach these skills verbally, visually, and tactually. So for those reasons, I have chosen the following SOL to focus my studies on:

K.4  The student will identify, say, segment, and blend various units of speech sounds.

a) Begin to discriminate between spoken sentences, words, and syllables.

b) Identify and produce words that rhyme.

c) Blend and segment multisyllabic words at the syllable level.

d) Segment one-syllable words into speech sound units including beginning phoneme(s) (onset) and ending (rimes).

e) Identify words according to shared beginning and/or ending sounds.
