Looking for the ideal resource to help your English-language learners (ELLs) learn to read? Look no further! Our CCVC Words reading videos are designed specifically with ELL students in mind. Each video allows learners to listen to the words being read, repeat the words and practice reading them independently. Not only does this approach help students with pronunciation, but it also allows them to broaden their vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension skills. Below is an overview of the progression our fun and engaging learning videos follow along with samples for you to try with your ELL students today!
The first set of learning videos focuses on beginning sounds in CCVC words, such as bl, ch, st, etc. English-language learners have the opportunity to listen to words read as a whole, broken down into parts (beginning and end sounds); then they are asked to repeat what they hear, and finally they are invited to try reading the words themselves.
Short ‘A’, ‘E’, ‘I’, ‘O’ & ‘U’ & Mixes
These videos present CCVC words by word family endings and focus on word recognition, phonemic awareness and pronunciation. In keeping with the learning pattern set out in the initial sounds videos, English-language learners again have the opportunity to listen, repeat and practice reading words independently.
CCVC Words Random Mixes
This set reviews CCVC words already seen and invites ELL students to practice reading the words in different tones of voices, ranging from quiet to loud – a great way for your students to build confidence in speaking English!
CCVC Words Themed Mixes
An important part of learning to read in English is the ability to comprehend text. These videos put the CCVC words ELL students have learned into themed contexts and allows them to imagine how they may be used orally, thereby enhancing their language and comprehension skills. The words are first presented individually and then in the context of a sentence.
In this final set of reading videos, English-language learners are introduced to two words at a time – either CVC, CCVC, or a combination of both, the focus being on word recognition, vocabulary building and comprehension skills.
The CCVC Words videos are now available for both classroom and at-home use. Explore our purchasing options to learn more and stay tuned for upcoming sets of videos that will accompany our Emergent and Transitional Readers eBooks.
At Education by Shala Books, we are always looking for ways to enhance our existing resources, so when Timmy Riday, an English teacher, and Qingdao LEKU Education & Culture Entertainment Co. Ltd., proposed the creation of learning videos to accompany our existing Emergent and Transitional Readers eBooks, it was an idea we immediately jumped as we could see their value for learners.
