Another POCET Literacy Example

POCET provides four basic activities for each of the 68 Developmental Guidelines which provide a scope and sequence of skills for Language, Literacy and Mathematics, plus five other domains of learning.

Here is another example for the Literacy domain:
Play Your Name
During circle time, try the activity, "Play Your Name." For this game, the children need to pick a movement for each word part in their name. The movements could include clapping, waving, jumping, smiling, sneezing, etc. Children with a one-word part (syllable) name need to only choose one action. Children with more than one word part should choose a different action for each word part. Example: Jordan chose to clap and stomp. He did two actions because his name has two word parts. JOR (clap), DAN (stomp). This game could turn into a "Follow the Leader" game with the other children doing the same actions as they say Jordan's name.
