Multisensory Playful Literacy Learning!
Children love to imagine and invent exciting fishing scenarios and actions to
make everyone laugh. It's not hard, because the Jazzles Fat Fish Animation is full of dramatic opportunities!
Enjoy the delight of your children as they engage emotionally and intellectually with fishing, fish and five fast flies looking
for some fine fast food. You will find all the ideas in the Lesson Plans for this animation.
Jazzles Voconics has an alliterative animation for each alphabet letter. They achieve extraordinary engagement - intellectually and emotionally.
Each animation is based on a Lesley Beth Voconics song. Each 'Voconics' song is an alliterative story that transforms into an engaging animation, interactive computer games and extensions into craft, drama, arts, music and language themed, cross-curriculum activities.
Every time children sing along and track the words in the Matching Captions on screen, they are using all three learning styles while engaging both their left and right brain as they experience 'reading' vocabulary in context.
The animations simultaneously develop: Vocabulary, Phonemic Awareness, Alphabetic Principle, Fluency, Comprehension, Concepts About Print and Oral Language.
This one animation introduces 68 Words in connected text. 43 are different including 17 starting with 'f'. Note the initial letter 'fF' is highlighted in the Matching Captions. Unfamiliar words in this song highlighted in bold italic. Unfamiliar words are words not usually found on lists of common words for 4th graders and below - but children find them more interesting and memorable than simple words.
48 Sight Words are practiced every time the 'Fat Fish' lyrics are seen and sung. Of these, 28 are different of which 10 are above the Primer Level.
Topics for discussion and inquiry prompted by this 'Fat Fish' Animation include: the number concepts of four and fi ve, open fire safety, the importance of friendship strategies, how to develop and maintain relationships, fostering family time, different types of families, family fun, fishing and conservation.
