This year we are introducing spelling. Not necessarily quizzing her with lists at this point, but more of decoding, using phonics.
I created this literacy folder as a gentle, fun way for my daughter to become more aware of how words are made. (With an intro to other literacy tools such as rhyming, nouns/verbs, plural/singluar, and more.)
Interactive Literacy Folder
This was designed for my Pre-K/Kindergarten age children. The content of this binder was designed to meet many of the basic, literacy, kindergarten benchmarks in a fun and engaging way.
- Parts of a book
- ABC order
- Letter confusion sort
- Rhyming words/pictures
- Beginning letter sounds
- Vowel recognition and use (CVC intro)
- Syllable counting and sort
- Ending letter sounds
- Nouns and verbs
- Singular and plural
- CVC word building
- Intro to sight words
- Beginning and ending blends
- Building words with blends
- Intro to word families
- Reading comprehension
NOTE: You can view a video of the ENTIRE contents HERE.
I laminated each page and used clear velcro to attach the movable pieces. Then I purchased a heavy-duty notebook to put the pages in.
It’s a little more work upfront, but it is well worth it in the long run. (ALSO, I made use of a small paper cutter which saved me a TON of cutting time.)
For storing, I keep the pieces on their coordinating pages. The kids take them off and put them back on as they go.
Assembly materials used:
- 1 inch Three-Ring Binder
- Laminating Pouches
- Clear Velcro Tape
- Laminating Machine
- Printable Interactive Literacy Folder
- Small Paper Cutter (optional)
NOTE: If you wanted to use this for a group of kids or a classroom setting, a three-ring, easel binder would be another great presentation option.
