Phonics Chants {free printable}

Ok, ok, ok....so it's been over a month since I've posted here.  Believe me, I know!  The start of this school year threw my team and me an unbelievable curve ball, and we are just now starting to come up for air.

So, here's a little something I threw together tonight for all of my incredibly faithful followers, my tremendously wonderful friends who have continued check my blog and leave such sweet comments.  I'm so sorry that I have been incognito.  I literally have been working nonstop on "school business," church stuff and training for my marathon since August 15.  Today was the first day that I took a nap, and even though it lasted for only one hour, it was GLORIOUS!

My freebie for you today is a set of 16 cards that can be used anytime you want your kids to chant words.  In 2nd grade, we have some "phonics charts" or word charts that contain rows of words that follow a phonics rule of the week.  There are about 5 words on a row and 4-5 rows on a chart.  We usually display one chart via the projector each day, and we ask our kiddos to choral read the words.  And that's all fine and dandy, but come on now.  Let's make that a little more fun.  So, some of these chants are my original ideas and some of them are ideas that I've tweaked from traditional word wall chants that I found from other websites and blogs.  So {here} ya go...enjoy!  Happy reading!  Oh, and if you have more ideas to add, please leave a comment and I'll make more cards to add to this set.

I love love love it! I teach 2nd as well, and those darn Open Court blending and word knowledge overheads just put my kiddos to sleep. This is an amazing idea. Do you just pick a random card each day? Or change it up with each row?

I know this was posted over a year ago, but I'm new to the blogging world and just found you. I have another card to add "Beat the Teacher". I do the words and time myself, then I write it on the chalkboard (yes, I still have chalkboards and no not by choice); then the students do it and I time them. If someone messes up/gets totally behind, then they have to start over.

If you are using colour printer you can design and take print but you have to take good quality Toner Cartridge for Printers for printing cards to send to your relatives.

Discover a Surefire Method to Teach Your Child to Read

There are many different methods and opinions on how to teach a child to read - while all are well-intentioned, some methods could actually lead to reading difficulties in children. Learning to read is a critical step towards future academic success and later on success in life. If you cannot read, you cannot succeed. There is an amazingly simple method - actually, a combination of two methods - that can teach anyone to read, even children as young as 2 and 3 years old.

The combination of these two methods has been used in the Children Learning Reading program to successfully teach thousands of young children to read. So what are these methods?

It is the combination of synthetic phonics and phonemic awareness. Most have probably heard of phonics, but phonemic awareness is a concept less well known and ?it's not something you hear about often. Certainly, phonics is absolutely necessary to develop fluent reading skills; however, there are different types of phonics including embedded, analogy, analytical, and synthetic phonics. While using some type of phonics is better than not including any phonics instructions at all, you will achieve FAR BETTER results by employing synthetic phonics, which is by far the most easy and effective method for teaching reading. Multiple studies support this.

In a 7 year study conducted by the Scottish Education Department, 300 students were taught using either analytic phonics or synthetic phonics. The results found that the synthetic phonics group were reading 7 months ahead and spelling 8 to 9 months ahead of the other phonics groups. At the end of the 7 year study, the children were reading 3.5 years ahead of their chronological age.

Very impressive!

Through their amazing reading program, the creators (Jim & Elena - parents of 4 children and reading teachers) have taught all of their children to read phonetically by 3 years old and have helped thousands of parents to successfully teach their children to read as well! Some are small 2 or 3 year old toddlers, others are young 4 or 5 year old preschoolers, and still others at ages 6, 7, 8 or even older.

>> Click here to watch amazing videos of young children reading, and see the amazing results so many parents are achieving with their children.

The Children Learning Reading program works so well that many children will achieve reading ages far ahead of their chronological age.

Take Jim & Elena's children as an example: their oldest child, Raine, was reading phonetically at 2 years 11 months old, and by the time she entered kindergarten at 5 years old, she was reading at a grade 5 level with a reading age of 11.9 years - almost 7 years ahead of her chronological age. Their second child, Ethan, learned to read phonetically by 2 years 9 months, and at age 3, he was reading at a grade 2 level with a reading age of 7.2 years - progressing at a similarly quick pace as his older sister. Find that hard to believe? You can watch the videos posted here.

There are many different phonics programs out there, but rarely do you ever hear a mention of phonemic awareness (PA), and PA is absolutely an equally critical component to developing reading skills in children. What makes the Children Learning Reading program so unique and amazingly effective at teaching young children is that it seamlessly combines the teaching of synthetic phonics along with phonemic awareness to enable children to develop superb reading skills.
