Ask yourself these questions when preparing a handout whether it is for the first day of school or just a plain ordinary lesson on teaching reading strategies. What is the aim of the handout? Will I grade the handout? Will I go over the handout in class or collect it? How much percentage will I give for handouts for the final grade?Is my handout well prepared? Do students have enough information to tackle the subject matter of the handout? Are the instructions crystal clear? Do I want the students to finish the handout at home or during class time?
Letter Books: These are books that frequently use the same phonemes over and over so students can understand them (the link between a letter and the sound it makes). For instance, "Baby bear bounced balls". These books are really good, especially if you have the book as a colouring book that you can fill out together. Here is a good activity: say the sound like "b says...buh buh, ball" and then students race to colour in their balls in their workbook. You can hang these up after and everyone will have fun.
Care should be taken to give children worksheets that they are capable of doing. This involves understanding and monitoring the child continually, since the level of attainment of different children would often be quite different. The worksheet should challenge the child but not overwhelm her. If the worksheet is too easy or too repetitive, it may bore the child and she would not be happy. If the activity is too difficult it would frustrate her and she would not like to take up more sheets.
