    フォニックスブック2の7つ目の動画です。ユニット7のこのチャントは、フォナニマルの歌と、フォニックスブック1に基づいた音と頭文字の区別を練習します。「h」と「k」、あとは「s」の音をチャントで紹介します。まずは、絵の中で何をみつけられるかピクチャートークしてみましょう。次にトラック39を聴いて、歌に登場する物を指さしましょう。そのあとはこの動画を見て、生徒が音と言葉を言うように促します。フラッシュカードを配って、その音や単語が聞こえたら前にもってきて順番に置いてもらいます。ページ27のLet’s Chantステッカーアクティビティーをします。それからは質問タイムをとります。What is it? と言って生徒がお互いに絵にあるものについて質問します。(ユニット1~5と同じように)h,k,sの音が入っているかどうかを判断させます。音を分けて言ってあげましょう。それとも、文字のフラッシュカードを置いて絵とその言葉の頭文字を生徒にマッチングしてもらいましょう。復習として前のユニットの単語も入れましょう。
