but to do so in a way that increases their desire to read” (Snow, Burns, Griffin, 1998, pg. 11). Highly effectual approaches in accomplishing this, is by ensuring that student’s instructions are gratifying and consistently reminding them that all printed letters have value. Teachers and parents need to involve their children in fun filled activities emphasizing that all letters have a specific sound and each letter has a name. Using many demonstrative, kinesthetic, pictorial, and auditory experiences, children will learn the letter S, the alphabetic principle, and phonemic awareness while completing projects associated with the season of spring. The children learn to track print, amplify their skills in listening, language, print, and literature. This week I will be introducing the children to a Spring Themed Unit. We will be focusing on different elements that make up spring and reinforcing their ability to recognize, sound out, and use the letter S. I will be using materials; such as picture books, poems, rhymes, non-fiction books, and a video to enhance their growth and development with key literature learning. I have provided a short list on another page of some of the materials we will be using. All of which will be used to teach the children about the alphabet, phonemic awareness, rhyming, and making new words. I am even extending this unit to teach the children about the important elements that make up literature, including character, plot, setting, and beginning, middle, and end of a story.

Unit Plan 20 When children start learning to read, they need to have knowledge of the alphabetic principle and be well-informed in their phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is a child’s capacity to distinguish the sounds in their language which is crucial when it comes to preparing themselves for reading. Phonemic awareness is an ability that gradually develops, in children resulting from constant experiences from verbal language. Reading helps guide children through this stage of learning and increases their vocabulary. Nursery rhymes, music, fun poems, and books that rhyme are the most effective ways when promoting phonemic awareness in young children. Parents can strengthen this skill by spending about 20 minutes, each night, reading with your child. Pointing out letters, names, and emphasize sound to improve their development. A list of books that we will be using, this week, is provided on the next page. Mrs. McCray References Berger, R. Woodfin, L., & Vilen, A. (2016). Learning That Lasts: Challenging Engaging, and
