Activity #2: Spot the Sound

1. The students will each be given a game board card with three blank circles.
2. For this game, I will say a word and sound. You will have to place the
counter on where you hear the sound. If the sound is in the beginning, you
will put the counter on the first circle. If the sound is in the middle, you will
put the counter on the second circle in the middle. If the sound is at the
end, you will put the counter on the third circle. Ill do one and then well
do one together.
3. The teacher will model where to place the counter on the word card. If I
say where is /a/ in the word hat, I would have to finger spell hat. So I have
/h/ /a/ /t/. I heard /a/ in the middle so Ill put the counter in the middle.
Now lets do this one together. Where do we hear /t/ in the word hat?
Lets finger spell together /h/ /a/ /t/. Lets all say where we hear /t/. We
hear it at the end.

yourselves? The students will respond. The teacher will do more guided

reinforced both activities, but it was more of an extension of the Spot the
Sound game. Since the students showed that they almost completely mastered
that game, I deiced to make my closure about finger spelling independently,
then actually spelling the word. I kept the same CVC words that the students
were exposed to throughout the lesson, but I wanted to see how much more I
could challenge them for the next time that we meet as a group. I also
reviewed the words at the end of the hopscotch activity. After we started the
activity, I realized that we should review the words that had short a in them and
the words that did not. I didnt have that written out in the lesson plan, but I
think it was a nice and effective edition to the activity. A way I could have
further reinforced the activity, and make it more challenging, would be to have
the students sort the words based on the middle sound. Another way I strayed
from my lesson plan was further reinforcing the hopscotch words when they
would pick up the word card. I asked the student to identify the middle sound

Two boys were off-task for a small part of the hopscotch activity. This
happened when it was not their turn. I was focused on the student doing the
hopscotch activity, so I could give them the prompting questions, but I did try to
remind them to listen to the student saying the word and which middle sound
matched that word. Since my last lesson, I have been trying to be more
observant when teaching. I tried to use reminding language when the boys
became off-task. I think after two reminders they finally began to listen to the
other students that were participating at that moment.
The students in this group for guided reading are pretty much on the same
level. There are some that are a little more advanced than the others, but I
didnt feel as if there needed to be individual differentiation within the lesson,
due to the fact that they are in this differentiated group. I think this group of
students work very well together, and help each other when needed.

**Accommodations and Modifications

Students with disabilities may need accommodations or modifications to their educational program to participate in the general curriculum. Both are essential to
consider when planning an equitable educational experience for students with disabilities. Accommodations refer to changes in how a student learns the material
but they do not change knowledge content. With accommodations, a student receives the SAME education as other children, but the student can access content or
express knowledge in different ways. Modifications refer to changes of what is taught or what students with disabilities are expected to learn. This may include
adaptations made to instruction and assessment that change or reduce learning expectations. (Please refer to the SLO User Guide and SLO template for additional

When completing these two sections, you need to describe, if appropriate, how you will ensure that students will access the material based on the accommodations
or modifications listed within the IEP or 504 plan. There should be a direct connection within the Anticipatory Set, Instructional Activity, and Closure section of
the lesson plan template.
