Use this fun A focused lesson plan to give your ELs a chance to practice their letter identification and sight word skills! It can be used as a stand-alone lesson or as support for the Spell and Say Words with A lesson plan.
Students will be able to recognize high frequency sight words beginning with the letter A.
Students will be able to identify grade-level sight words beginning with the letter A using visual and written supports.
Display the book The Ants Go Marching to the class (in a big book version if possible).
Read aloud the book, using a pointer to follow along as you read each word.
Tell the class that today you will be learning about words that start with the letter A, just like "ant" in the story. All of the words you will be learning to read today are ones called sight words. Say, "A sight word is a word you can read by memory—you don't need to sound it out."
