Read the book. Sing the song numerous times. The popcorn word, on, is the high-frequency word this week. We are reinforcing the high-frequency word or popcorn word, the, also.
Each picture on the white picture cards represents an item in the classroom that the children can physically move to and place the spider on. The children were confusing the words ‘in’ and ‘on’ before this awesome lesson.
The teacher allows the child to pick a picture card (face up, picture showing). The child reads the sentence strip and the child places the picture card into the pocket card. The student reads the sentence strip including the picture card. Then the child put “the spider on the bookcase.” Finally, the students says the sentence again.
