Shared Reading: Returning to the text: Part 1—Phonemic awareness for First Graders (7 of 8)
The first part of this two-part lesson is designed to support students to listen for sounds in words. (This particular sound, the long /e/ sound, was chosen for instruction because there were many examples of words in two well-known books with this sound that used varied spelling patterns to represent the sound.) The teacher revisits two known books, rereading and emphasizing the words with this sound, and collects these words onto a chart. (The lesson focus in this two-part lesson was to gather numerous examples of words with long /e/ spelling patterns in preparation for a later phonics lesson.)
