Beginning Letter Sound Activity Sheets

Thursday, November 9, 2017

Vito’s favourite work in the morning are our pink series cards (we try to work on one vowel sound a week) and these beginning sound activity sheets. I made these cards years ago (just revamped them) and used them with Mavi, it’s one of his favourite language works.  Because Mavi can write letters at 3 years old, we didn’t get to use our moveable alphabet and instead he would just write the missing letters.

Beginning Letter Sound Activity Sheets (Montessori Pink Series)

Introducing the Montessori Pink Series for Beginning Reading

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

I've talked about Vito’s sensitive years for letters in my Instagram account.  Since September, he’s been into letter sounds, identifying beginning letter sounds, sorting objects according to sound, making rhymes, forming words, pretending to read and deciphering words etc. so I decided to give him a “structured” activity on alphabets.  Here’s what we have been doing so far:
  1. Five in a Row activities that are tied to a letter
  2. A letter of the week kind of activity to go along with a holiday or season (letter l and letter a)
  3. Reading lots of books
  4. After learning a letter, we would read and create his own phonics booklet
During the course of these activities, I observed that he would try to decipher a word, or pretend to create words using sticky tapes, in writing and using our moveable alphabet.  Plus, he knows 90% of the letter sounds (though he's still confused with c and k).  With the signs, I knew he would be ready for the Montessori Pink Series.  And oh boy, it was the best decision I made!

Pink Series

We’ve been doing this almost every day.  Currently we’re doing the ‘objects and moveable letters’ and ‘objects and cards’.  Next week we’ll be doing the abstract version, that’s using picture cards instead of objects.  After which we also work on the worksheets for the Pink Series: beginning and ending sounds.

Since I don’t have a printer, I just wrote these beginning and ending letters on a cardstock, covered it with a contact paper (I don’t own a laminator) and made him use a dry erase pen.  This way, we can always reuse our worksheets.

In case you want to know, here are objects for the Pink Series.

 

Math

We learned about time and how to read it.  See my post here.

Then also had Addition for our Math. The concept here is similar to that of Montessori’s Addition Strip Board but instead we used blue and red bear counters.  I plant to make another set using printed materials whenever my son progresses fromthis.

Update on our Pink Series

Saturday, January 14, 2012

We’ve been religiously working on our pink series for the past week.  Thanks to Amy of Wonder Years for posting what I needed to know about Pink Series
In a nutshell here are the activities we should do:

Pink Reading Scheme: Object Boxes

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Aside from the Alpha Phonics Boxes, I also made my son Montessori’s Pink Scheme as part of our materials for language lesson.  Since my son has a thorough knowledge of the alphabets and knows each sound by heart, I decided to put this “knowledge” to a test.  He’s into letters for the past months and pretending to read words.  So it is just timely that I should introduce him to the basic step of learning how to read... the cvc words (consonant-vowel-consonant).
