Grades K – 12 | Student Interactive
Students use this online tool to create an alphabet chart or pages for an alphabet book.
Using names and high-frequency words from nursery rhymes and the Big Book The Enormous Watermelon, students engage in word recognition activities such as character identification and a word matching game.
Students generate descriptive timelines and can include images in the description.
3, 2, 1... Blast off! Students learn new vocabulary by taking a virtual field trip to the moon, read-alouds, creating a picture dictionary, and completing a final writing activity.
Picture Match is a matching game that reinforces the concept of beginning-letter and short- and long-vowel sounds.
Children find favorite words, phrases, and sentences from familiar stories. Working together, they combine their words and phrases to create a poem. The poem is then shared as performance poetry.
This online activity helps students recognize word patterns by having them sort a series of words into short-vowel word families.
This lesson encourages students to use rhyming words to write rebus poetry modeled on rebus books, which substitute pictures for the words that young students cannot yet identify or decode.
The interactive Printing Press is designed to assist students in creating newspapers, brochures, and flyers.
This book details the importance of establishing a literacy-mathematics connection for students and offers suggestions and ideas for improving math skills while fostering literacy growth.
This position on Multimodal Literacies is a summary statement developed by the Multimodal Literacies Issue Management Team of the NCTE Executive Committee.
