Activity Type: Build Accuracy
Activity Form: Game
Grade: K, 1
Group Size: Small Group
Length: 10 minutes
Materials: 10 small strips of paper with three letters written on one side of strip (make sure the letters are spaced out far enough so that it doesn’t look like three-letter words but rather, three separate letters), one bowl
Goal: Given a printed letter, the student can say the letter's sound ( a -> /a/)
Items: All 26 letter sounds

What to do

  1. Put all 10 strips of paper in the bowl.
  2. Today, we are going to eat some spaghetti. But, class, this is not normal spaghetti – this is sound spaghetti! Each person will take one piece of spaghetti out of the bowl when I call on you. Then, by yourself, you will practice the letter sounds on that piece of spaghetti by saying each sound three times. I want us to practice by ourselves in a quiet way. Please watch me as I model how to do this.
  3. Model how to take a piece of “spaghetti” out of the bowl and read the sounds to yourself three times.
  4. I will now call on students to each take a piece of spaghetti.
  5. Allow each student to take a piece of paper. Each child will practice the sounds by themselves. Once everyone has read their sounds on their piece of “spaghetti” three times, they will read the sounds aloud.
  6. Good job, eaters! Now, I want each person to read their sounds to the class. After you’ve read your sounds, you can “eat” your spaghetti by crumpling it up and putting it in your lap.
  7. Repeat Steps 2 and 3.
  8. Good job on eating all your spaghetti and saying your letter sounds!
  9. Observe students play the game. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
