Learning Outcome:

- Students will learn vocabulary that start with letter /T/, such as teddy, tiger, TV,
train, tree and turtle.

Strand: Phonics.
Theme: Animals and Humans

On the 14th of October, I taught a phonics lesson which is about letter /t/. The
outcome was recognizing the shape of the letter /t/ and the sound of it, know how to
write the letter /t/ and learn new vocabularies such as a teddy, tiger, TV, train, tree, and
turtle. I try to use different strategies that am weak in classroom management, so I used
to clap as taking their attention then said when teacher Clapp student be quiet. I try to
ask the students different types of questions such as "what the sound of the letter t"
"give me a word start with the sound t" to enhance their oral skills and to scaffold their
learning during the lesson and the activities. In the end, I assessed the learning
understanding by asking questions and writing notes and using checking lest and I told
my MST to take pictures in order to understand their learning abilities.

Introduction part
Warming up- Introducing the sound
During the introduction part, I introduced to the students what we are going to learn.
‘Today we are going to learn a new sound and you have to tell me what do you think it
is’. After that I show them a box and let them to guess what inside the box and tell me,
after that, I started to show them the items that inside the box and let the students
name it. (The items are Teddy bear, TV, Tiger, turtle, train), after that, they tell me that
the items start with the same sound which is /t/. Following, I asked the students
questions using Bloom's Taxonomy as it shows in the lesson plan which is "Give me a
word that starts with letter T?" students gave me the same words that I showed them in
the box and don't think as a new word, so next time I will put new items in the
classroom maybe they will find around the classroom and say it.
In the active engagement part:

I put for the students a song that showed the students the sound of the letter /T.
but the students focus on the women in the video not on the sound of the letter, so the
next time I will use the sound song without something that takes their attention.

After that, I showed them a video showed them how to write the letter T, and then I let
them write it in the air and in the floor, it was a good idea because the students wrote
the letters in the floor and the air in the correct way.
Phonemic Awareness
I did for them a formative assessment during the circle area which is playing a
game. The game is finding letter T around the class, then they will have two trays, the
first tray is for the uppercase letter and the other tray is for lowercase, so they have to
sort the letters that they have. This game let me know their understanding of the
lowercase and uppercase of letter /t/.
So when they came to stick the letter I asked them what is this ? and what the sound of
this letter? and they have to answer to stick it, also they have to say a word that starts
with this sound. In this part I can assess their phonemic awareness of the students,
phonological awareness is a significant part of the children to help them to develop their
oral, reading and writing skills in early ages.

Introducing Phonics & Letter Knowledge (Active Engagement and formative


assessment)
I taught the children how to write the letter /t/ by showing them a video that
explains how to write the letter in the correct way, at the end of the video, I started to
write the letter in front of the students, then we wrote it together, after that I let them
write it on their own in the air, then in the floor during that I was observing the students
and how the way that they wrote it, and I let them repeat it three times. I think that the
children did a successful job in this part of the lesson, and they were engaged in writing
the letter.

Transitions
In transition, I called their names based on their groups, it was easily smoothly
transitions but it took time, in the next time I prefer to let them wears tags that shows
colours, then I will call them based on the colours of their group. When they finished
their activities, I started to sing a song which is a clean-up song and turn off the light, so
they start to clean up and push their chairs to come back to the center easily and
smoothly.

Activities time
I did four activities, two in the focus center and the other in the other different
areas of the class, it was a mistake that I made four activities in the same time, I have to
take group by group. I graded the students by using the checklist, and the checklist
three different columns which are emerging, developing mastered, so the child who
knows to solve the activity he will be mastered. The first activity is for low students
which are making letter /t/ by blocks, the second activity is finding letter /t/ from the
box, the third activity is found the pictures that start with the sound /t/ and stick them
in the big paper, the last activity is put the clips in the written picture with the names.
The students were engaged and focused on their works, but I did different four activity
in different learning outcomes, so for the next lesson, I will focus on one learning
outcome and only in one group.

Closing time
In the closing time, I reviewed what we learned in the lesson by making the sound
again, then I let them write it in the air, in the end, I gave the students a long paper and
they wrote letter T and drew anything that starts with letter T. So, this long paper makes
me make sure that the students participate and everyone contributed to writing the
letter and drawing. Students were engaged in working together as one team, that will
develop their fine motor skills, oral language skills, and social skills.

Evidence from my lesson


At the end of the lesson, I think that the students were able to rec ognize the
letter /t/ with saying the sound of it, write a letter /t/ and know the new
vocabulary that they learn in the center since they did the activities in a good
way. These pictures below prove the students’ understanding:
Students find the picture that start with sound T.

Students drawing something start with the sound T

Students find the letter T

Next steps
In the next lesson, I will follow the feedback of my MCT and MST, I will
try to use more students center than teacher center in the activities, try to
scaffold their understanding step by step. Moreover, using different
strategies such as the reward system, giving a star for the students who sit
properly and participated with me.
