Pictured is first grade teacher Faceethia Ware working with Nehemiah Chapman and Jaxson Massengill on phonograms, which are letter sounds. Phonics is the focus of the Literacy Camp; students have been reviewing phonograms by segmenting and blending simple CVC words using a blending board.
Students also do a lot of word mapping to build words. For instance, if the teacher shows the students a picture of a cat, they would say or touch spell the sounds in the word, tap the sounds and then build the word C-A-T, SCAT, LIP, FLIP, etc.
Instruction has also been focused on a lot of hands-on and multi-sensory phonics activities. Mrs. Ware says, “I’m super proud of my students; they’ve been working hard.”

In the afternoon campers ride the bus to Poplar Point for activities. Pictured are campers learning about making healthy choices when choosing drinks, thanks to a Coosa County Extension Office representative.
