Vote by Letter:  Evaluative Feedback

Voting by letter is a great activity for helping students have a ‘real’ purpose for figuring out initial sounds in words.  This tip describes how to give evaluative feedback to supporting:
  • Onsets: initial vowels, digraphs, or blends
  • Vowels: especially vowels that are ‘obvious’ such as /a/ in cat or /i/ in ice 
This strategy helps students move beyond guessing, by:
  1. Comparing their choice to the correct choice
  2. Showing them what word their choice would make
