Lesson Plan: Phonics “ou” for Primary 2 Children

Subject: English Language Arts (Phonics) Grade Level: Primary 2 (7-8 years old)

Objective: - Students will be able to recognize and pronounce words with the “ou” sound correctly. - Students will be able to identify and differentiate between words with “ou” and words without “ou” in a given text.

Materials: - Whiteboard or chart paper - Markers - Phonics “ou” flashcards - Video resources (links provided below) - Worksheet resources (links provided below)

Introduction: 1. Greet the students and introduce the topic of the lesson: Phonics “ou.” 2. Show the students the flashcards with words containing the “ou” sound (e.g., cloud, house, mouse). 3. Ask the students if they notice anything similar about these words. Encourage them to listen carefully to the sound they hear in each word.

Lesson Outline: 1. Explain to the students that the “ou” sound is a vowel team that makes a unique sound. 2. Write the “ou” vowel team on the board and pronounce it together with the students. 3. Introduce a few more words with the “ou” sound and have the students repeat after you (e.g., shout, round, found). 4. Use the video resources below to reinforce the “ou” sound. Pause the videos at appropriate times to discuss and reinforce the sound. - Video 1: “Phonics Song 2” by KidsTV123 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BELlZKpi1Zs) - Video 2: “Learn to Read | Phonics for Kids” by Alphablocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NOzgR1ANc4) 5. Provide the students with a worksheet to practice reading and writing words with the “ou” sound. Use the worksheet resources below. - Worksheet 1: “Phonics ‘ou’ Words” by Education.com (https://www.education.com/download/worksheet/105682/phonics-ou-words.pdf) - Worksheet 2: “Phonics ‘ou’ Word Search” by K5 Learning (https://www.k5learning.com/sites/all/files/worksheets/phonics/phonics-word-search-ou.pdf)

Questioning: 1. During the lesson, ask the students questions to check their understanding and engagement. Examples include: - What sound does the “ou” make? - Can you think of any other words with the “ou” sound? - How would you spell the word that sounds like “cloud”?

Assessment: 1. To assess the students’ understanding, have them complete the provided worksheet independently. 2. Observe their ability to correctly identify and write words with the “ou” sound.

Differentiation: 1. For students who need extra support, provide additional practice with flashcards and one-on-one guidance during the worksheet activity. 2. For advanced students, challenge them to create sentences using words with the “ou” sound.

Plenary: 1. Review the lesson by asking the students to share some of the words they learned with the “ou” sound. 2. Play a quick game of “I Spy” where students take turns describing objects in the classroom that have the “ou” sound.

Note: Adapt the lesson plan as needed to suit the specific needs and abilities of your students.
