Hello, I have an interview Friday and have been asked to teach a 30 minute lesson to a class of Year 1's. They have asked that the children learn how to spell words with the o split e digraph. My main idea in the lesson is to have the o split e digraph on tables and letters spread around and ask the children to create 4 letter words. As a group, they will decide if the word they have made is a real word or a nonsense word. If it is a nonsense word, the children will put the word in an alien 'bin' that I have made. At the end of the lesson I will check the bin and as a class we will assess whether they are correct - are the words in the bin, alien or not? However, not having knowledge of whether the children have been taught o split e before (i presume not) I would like to start by teaching them the sound. Knowing the school follow RWI I was considering going the whole route of revise previous sounds as a starter, introduce sound, get children to fred finger words with sound and then spell words with the sound then doing the activity. I know that is too much to fit into half hour though so wondering whether any of it can be missed out? is there any way I can cut this lesson down? Thank You so much.
