In this lesson, students will learn how to "stretch" words to spell them. They will practice spelling CVC words, as well as a few other one-syllable words with consonant blends. Activities include: dragging letters into boxes to spell words, listening to words to determine the spelling, and completing words with missing letters.



Learning objective

Students will be able to spell simple words phonetically drawing on knowledge of letter-sound relationships.


Students will identify the letters, "A" and "T." Explain why it is important to learn how to spell words.


Explain how to "stretch" words to spell them. Students will follow these steps: 1) Think of a word. 2) Say the word slowly. 3) Listen for each sound. 4) Say a letter for a sound.

Students will drag each letter in the words, "cap," "fan," and "bat" and stretch each phoneme as they drag. They will also sound out the word, "pin" by writing in the beginning, middle, and ending sounds. They will do this with the words, "box," "car," "mask," and "sled." Next, students will complete CVC word by writing in the missing letter(s). Then, they will listen to the speaker say a word and spell it below.


Students will respond to ten short-answer questions that involving listening to a speaker and spelling the words they hear.


Students will recall what they learned in this lesson:
- Why is it important to know how to spell words?
- How can you stretch out a word?
