Knowledge and Skills Statement

Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking--beginning reading and writing. The student develops word structure knowledge through phonological awareness, print concepts, phonics, and morphology to communicate, decode, and spell.

Presente un cartel con el alfabeto. Los estudiantes imitan al maestro y repiten las letras que el maestro va señalando. Una vez que los estudiantes han repetido varias veces el alfabeto y los sonidos asociados a cada una de sus leras, señale letras al azar para que ellos expresen el sonido asociado a esa letra. Tome nota de las respuestas de los estudiantes.
 

Further Explanation

Los estudiantes son capaces de identificar los sonidos de las letras del alfabeto y reconocen la letra que representan. Asociar las letras con los sonidos es la base para la lecto-escritura.

In Spanish, most letters in the alphabet have only one sound. Students are expected to identify and match letters and their corresponding sound(s). For example, the sounds /e/, /f/, or /d/ are always represented by the letters e, f, and d, as in the initial sound of words like elefante, fuego, and dinosaurio.
Phonetic knowledge is the understanding of sound-symbol relationships and spelling patterns.

(3)  Reading/Beginning Reading Skills/Phonics. Students use the relationships between letters and sounds and morphological analysis to decode written Spanish. Students are expected to:
(A)  decode the five vowel sounds;
(C)  use phonological knowledge to match sounds to individual letters and syllables, including hard and soft consonants such as "r," "c," and "g";
(D)  decode the written "y" when used as a conjunction, as in "mamá y papá";
