Tune in to each sound through a song, scene, and story, then masterfully relate it to its small and capital print forms.
The students by now have anchored sounds to a particular action. But before we bring the sounds and print together, the students once again use their listening ears for storytelling time. Each story (Maikling Kuwento) contains a vibrant scene, depicting Filipino culture. Each scene is packed with various objects that have the focus sound in the beginning, middle, or end of their names. Let’s start the sound games with a sound hunt and many more games await with each beautiful scenes.
Now it’s time to really get to know them one sound at a time! Our second step brings sounds to life with short, easy to remember and very catchy tunes. There are 28 new songs (Kantasa Pagpapakilala sa Tunog) that reinforce the sounds and actions of each letter which connects to step 1. Without even knowing it, your students will learn the correct pronunciation of each sound while they are having fun singing and moving their bodies.
Lights, Camera….Click! There’s a face to the sound and a sound to the face. Take a picture of the sound using our camera and watch it “print” out the letters. Students will enjoy taking a “picture” of each letter. The students will show you how well they know the letters! Remembering the print of each letter will be easy as it is anchored on a sound and action.
Which ones go together? Sort the capital and small letters, or pair them up! Put the letters together to form funny syllables, then take them apart and see what happens! We can play a wide range of games with our individual letters cards. We can even give word building a go! We extend our helping paws and connecting links to you and your students as you begin to explore the world of print.
