Students will be able to distinguish between the short and long /a/ sound. Students will be able to produce and sort words with the short /a/ and long /a/ sound. Students will be able to read CVC words containing the short and long /a/ sound.
ELA.K.R.C6.1 demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables and sounds (phonemes).
• recognize and produce rhyming words.
• count, pronounce, blend and segment syllables in spoken words.
• blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words.
• isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant
or cvc) words. (this does not include cvcs ending with /l/, /r/ or /x/.)
• add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
ELA.K.R.C7.1 know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
• demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or many of the most
frequent sounds for each consonant.
• associate the long and short sounds with common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
• read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
• distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.
