Phonics CVCe day 1

Name: Kate Gomez

Grade Level: 2nd Grade
School: West Central Elementary School
Date: Monday, September 19, 2016
Time: 8:45 - 9:05
Reflection from prior lesson:
In prior phonics lessons, students have been called to the front of the room with their white
board and a marker. They needed to be monitored to ensure that they were on task the whole
time without drawing or coloring on their whiteboards. When writing words, they had to be
monitored to ensure correct spellings. No capital letters were accepted, nor were reversals
accepted. When students went back to their desks to work with the letter cards, only one
student in a pair often made the words until told directly to switch. In the next lesson, I will
constantly monitor the use of the white boards when students are sitting in front. I will begin
with the instruction to switch with each other when students are working in pairs with letter

90% accuracy.
When given a list of words, students will sort words by one syllable and two syllables with
90% accuracy.
I can spell words with the CVCe pattern.
I can sort words by one and two syllables.

Contextual Factors/ Learner Characteristics:

This second grade classroom has 21 students in it. There are 10 girls and 11 boys. The class
has a student who is on an IEP and regularly leaves the classroom and a student who
struggles to stay on task during the lesson. In this classroom, there is a wide range in
academic levels of the students. There is one boy who struggles to independently stay on
task. Lessons are often begun together and completed with student work time. When students
finish working they can move on to math workshop.
A. The Lesson
Setup: have letter cards ready for the students on their desks

1. Crate
a. Model how to
blend words with CVCe patterns:
I hear two parts in the word crate. /cr/ and /ate/. I know
that the letters c and r make the blended sound /cr/. I will
write these on the board. I hear the long vowel /a/ followed
by /t/ so I will write the letters a and t. I know that we are
working with the CVCe pattern with a silent e so I will add
the e to the end. Finally, I want to blend the word and
check the spelling word. /cr/ /ate/, crate.

watching and correcting as they write. They will all show me their boards when
done writing. As students are working, I will be walking around the classroom to
monitor student work.
C. Differentiated Instruction
a. Below average students -Students will be encouraged to break
apart each word to learn how to spell it. I will explain to them how to break apart
the syllables and decode each part. Students will say each word before writing it.
They will be given the chance to stay behind while others go back to their desk
for further clarification.
b. Average students - Students will be encouraged to break apart each
word to sound the word out. Students will be encouraged to say each word before
writing it. I will offer support while they are writing.
c. Above average students - The students will be encouraged to write
each each word independently. They will have the opportunity to add extra words
if they are able to. They can say each word before spelling if needed.
