Using Active Phonics Instruction with C-V-C Words

This Kindergarten teacher incorporates movement to engage early emergent readers in learning C-V-C words by using a creative game called “Can You Show Me?” The literacy lesson goals are twofold: reading the simple three-letter word and understanding its meaning. Movement or actions are taught and practiced, creating connections that will stick as eager readers collect new words. Informal, immediate reading outcomes are easily assessed through whole-group participation and as individuals read word cards and demonstrate actions to show meaning. Brain science proves the power of movement in learning and for wiggly little learners, it becomes their secret to reading success!

Reflection Question:
How does the incorporation of actions and movement increase the likelihood that students will learn the concept?
