Stretching Word Strategies

These strategies will help your child stretch words and record as many sounds as possible.

 

  

Rubber Band Spelling

I tell students that the rubber band stretches, and we can use the rubber band to help us stretch words.

I model how to hold the rubber band between two fingers (thumb and pointer).

I demonstrate how to stretch a simple c-v-c word for students, using the rubber band as a tool.

 

 

Arm Spelling

 Students use their arms and pointer finger from the opposite arm/hand.

They hold their non-dominant hand out and point to their shoulder with their pointer finger.

 I demonstrate how to spell a simple c-v-c word for students, using their arm:

  • Start at shoulder with pointer finger and say the first sound:  /c/.  Then write the sound.
  • Start at the shoulder again with pointer finger, and then move down your arm until you hear the next new sound: /c/ /a/.  Then write the new sound heard.

  • Start at the shoulder again with pointer finger, and then move down your arm until you hear the next new sound: /c/ /a/ /t/.  Then write the new sound heard.

  • For longer words, this process is repeated until the last (ending) sound is heard.

 

Bubble Gum Spelling

We pretend to stretch the gum from our mouths,  the motion helps us stretch words.

I model how to pretend pull gum from their mouths (pinch gum between teeth, pull gum with fingers outward). I demonstrate how to spell a simple c-v-c word, using the "gum" as a tool.

 

 

Animated Turtles

Turtle Talk

 We say words very very slowly just like a turtle.
