The other app, neuKidsDraw is also fun for students because they choose their color/decorated marker and then follow the same format where they put a dot down for each sound they hear in the word I said. I did not draw the boxes for this particular student, but you can also do the same like I did on ScreenChomp.
The other phonemic awareness activities I incorporate into my weekly routine includes a pack of winter-themed pictures and backgrounds. When I brought the backgrounds and pictures out this week, one student even said, “Oh, this could be fun!”….and thankfully, afterward he did really think is was fun! I put a background in front of each student and then I say a word and they put down the pictures for each sound in the word. For example- Pile Up the Presents- students put a present down for each sound in the word. My students all love the fun graphics! The last picture in this section shows how I organize all the pieces for our fun phonemic awareness activities- with just a file folder and mini accordion folder. You can find my Activity #1 Packet and Activity #2 Packet on TPT!
I LOVE all these ideas, especially how the kids can record themselves explaining their picture on the graphic organizer! So cool! You always find the most engaging little reading activities.:)
