kinesthetic phonics

We have been using some books called  Explode the Code for Phonics. I have been supplementing with some active games that I though of. I wrote each of the letters for the sounds we've been working on a piece of paper and set them around the room. For the first game (musical chairs variation) I sing and when I stop the girls stand on a letter and tell me what sound it makes and a word that starts with that letter. The second game we use the same papers and I call out a sound and everyone puts  foot on the letter that makes that sound (I plan to do this with blends, digraphs, sight words etc.)

What a fun way to teach phonics. It sounds like the girls are really getting into it. Yea!!

I wish I could have been in your class when I was learning sounds!
