Secret Stories Have Lincoln Hubbard Second Graders Hooked
Secret Stories have our second graders completely hooked! This program teaches the students how the English language works thru Secret Stories to small groups. One example of how we are teaching the students more details about the alphabet is by disguising that vowels have superpowers. We show them that vowels are the only letters in the alphabet that can actually say their own name, or long vowel sounds, and because of this they need a disguise of short vowel sounds so the other letters don’t get too jealous. As a class, we have practiced the Better Alphabet song, which teaches students the sounds the letters make. In reflecting on the Better Alphabet song, one second grade student said: “The vowels get more stuck in my head every time I hear it. And, it reminds me that the consonants have other sounds.”
