THEME – READING
PREVIOUS LESSON – Use Sounds of Letters to Form Three Letter Words (Primary 1)
TOPIC – USE LETTER – SOUND CORRESPONDENCE BUILD AND READ UNFAMILIAR
By the end of the lesson, the pupils should have attained the following objectives (cognitive, affective and psychomotor) and should be able to –
1. break words into sounds.
2. break words into smaller words.
3. break words into parts and identify the word parts.
4. use letter-sound correspondence to build and read unfamiliar words and
5. recognise and use vowel diagraphs and r-controlled letter sounds to read unfamiliar words.
The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:
1. Pocket Charts
2. Listening Games
3. Tape Recorders
4. Audio Tapes
5. Flash Cards
6. Word Walls.
METHOD OF TEACHING – Choose a suitable and appropriate methods for the lessons.
Note – Irrespective of choosing methods of teaching, always introduce an activities that will arouse pupil’s interest or lead them to the lessons.
