This next phonics series comes with a complete phonics lesson for each letter! Phonics learning is easily made fun when you use these engaging videos in the classroom! Squigglet starts with a short fun song that includes the entire alphabet and word with a corresponding letter sound, before starting a short but impactful lesson on a particular letter.
He then introduces the focus letter by modeling how to write the letter and sharing a few words with corresponding letter sounds. Then he moves on to tell a fun story that includes a plethora of words (pictures) with the focus letter-sound sprinkled throughout highlighting them in the tale.
The lesson wraps up with a short clip of children joining the lesson to model how to write the focus letter. This is a great opportunity to let students record each other ‘modeling’ how to write the focus letter! It really encourages them to stay on task and do their best each time they write.
