Name Talk: Exploring Letter-Sound Knowledge in the Primary Classroom.
Egawa, Kathy
This lesson plan invites primary students to share their letter/sound knowledge in a small group and gives teachers an opportunity to assess knowledge in a meaningful context. Working with name cards, students share observations about their names and the names of their classmates. Extensions are appropriate for a range of primary-aged students. During two 15-minute sessions, students will: share their knowledge of letter and sounds, prompted by their names; make connections between their names/knowledge and that of their peers; make connections between personal print knowledge and the available print in the classroom setting; and demonstrate knowledge of letters "in context." The instructional plan, lists of resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included.
