Each student has an iPad in front of him/her and I choose a story to read aloud. I am currently using simple readers that do not have too complex language because my next goal with this activity is to have a little friend do the reading while the others make words! So, I read the story and take out my stop sign every other page and have the students "stop and write." The students are just writing one word that I say from the page I just read. I currently am choosing CVC words, CVCe words or sight words from the text since they all need practice with these. However, in the future I will align it with our focus of the week from our reading series, so that they can also be making words with digraphs, blends, r controlled vowels, etc. (That'll take a little more planning on my part in regard to which book I can use as a read aloud, but will be so worth the extra effort so my little friends get some more practice with various skills!)
Have a great day!
