Weekly phonics lesson

We are using the cards from The Writing Road to Reading as a guide. We’re going through them in order and use 3 cards per week. I write a little poem or story paragraph using words with as many of the sounds as I can possibly incorporate.

This week our sounds are: ck, ar and ed. Here’s the poem/story:

Far back of the garden beneath a black night sky a girl in a tie dyed frock sat and watched the stars.

Of course, I drew a picture of this on our chalk board. I’m always surprised when my drawings come out looking even remotely like what I am trying for. We have a 4 day week for phonics. Days 1, 2, and 3 we read the poem and go over 1 card. Martina picks the words out of the story which have that letter blend and we talk about what sound/s that blend makes. Day 4 she copies the drawing and poem into her MLB.
