Reading the Alphabet AT Word Family
Here are a few snapshots of the review activities as well as newer activities I created for the AT Word Family. I was truly surprised at how quickly NJoy (3 days shy of being 4 years old!) caught on to the -at family words. To see how all of these activities were spaced out into our week, I’ve included 5-day plan the download.
He read back through all of the books (divided up into two days); reviewing our letter sounds and sight words. (You can download the I See Apples book here. It’s not a part of Reading the Alphabet.)
He thoroughly enjoyed re-tracing all of his sight word mazes. One morning, he spent nearly 15 minutes just sitting and tracing all of the mazes, searches, and tracer pages in his Handwriting Notebook. I was amazed because this child rarely sits to do anything!
I also reprinted a few mazes for him to stamp his way through. He liked this as well.
I cut apart sight word cards (on download), placed magnetic tape on the back and he used magnetic letters to spell each word on the cookie sheet. He was excited to get to do something he’d always seen big brother do.
AT Word Family Work
I printed off “level 2” of this bottle cap activity in which the beginning letters were left off and he had to review letter sounds; building the words with bottle caps. (These are similar to the bottle cap spelling we did with my PreK Farm Unit from this summer.)
Scat Rat! Reader We re-built the -at words from the reader on the floor, re-read them together, found them in the text, then read it together. He gained more independence each day we read it and needed less and less support.
CAT Tracer Page-This was also placed in his Handwriting Notebook page and he traced the page several times in different colors.
