We are SO grateful for our wonderful sponsor, Lectura para niños, and all the fantastic FREE downloads that they share with MommyMaestra readers every month. Today's download is a great resource for parents of Spanish readers.
Parents always ask me how they can help their child at home. I started sending these home with my kiddos a few years ago, but I have recently updated this file. Usually at the beginning of the year, I start with sending the “segmenting syllables” pages only. Around November, I start sending the pages that segment words into syllables and sounds. Segmenting words into sounds is a developmental skill. Having the students at least say the sounds for each word while looking at it is a start. Soon, the students will be able to segment a 4 sound word without looking and then progress to a 6 sound word. I wouldn’t expect students to segment words with blends or diphthongs until they get to 1st grade. I do have many of my students who can do this by the end of the year, but not all are quite ready for it.
I hope your readers enjoy this!
