Introduction

(5 minutes)
  • Call students together.
  • Make sure that students can see either a computer screen or a projected version of a computer screen.
  • Explain to students that they are going to see four pictures with written words on them on the screen. The computer is going to tell students what picture/word they should be looking for. Students should call out either "one," "two," "three," or "four" to indicate which picture you should click on. (Make sure to indicate which of the game puddles is "one," "two," "three," and "four" so that students are clear.)
  • As a group, play the Long Vowel Word Hop game one or two times.

Beginning

  • Demonstrate how to play the game to students prior the start of the lesson by modeling a practice round before playing the group rounds.
  • Provide instructions in the students' home language (L1) as able.

Intermediate

  • Practice reviewing numbers with students to check their understanding and ability to differentiate between different numbers.
