I am using the information I obtained through the Pathways training. The whole group instruction and activities have helped my kiddos to understand letters, sounds, segmenting and writing words, and being able to stretch sounds. Also, Vowel Hill has helped the kindergartners to understand the difference between a vowel and a consonant and to know why vowels are important. We do each of these activities each day: Bubble Gum Stretch, ABC Point and Sing, Segment and Write, and Head, Shoulder’s, Hips and Clap. When we do individual activities, I observe the children using these strategies to help them figure out letter sounds and they begin reading words! They get so excited and it is amazing to watch their growth. Pathways has definitely helped me teach letters, sounds, and reading strategies more effectively!
