In the past three weeks, our learning focused was on attending to initial letters and common inflections while reading.
This became a focused after hearing my learners left out some of these when they speak or read. Remind you that almost all my students are second language learners of English so it is difficult to pick up these little sounds when talking.
We therefore made it as a big thing, everytime they read a book they must make a specific attention to the initial letter of words that they may not know, and also attend to the ending sound of every word in their book. We were specifically looked at words that end with 's, ing, ed'.
It was hard at the beginning but after sometime, it became a habit for my learners.
