Flashlight, Flashlight During the first few weeks of school, CVC and CVCC words are added to the Word Wall. Throughout the year, add non-decodable words to the wall. Using a flashlight, turn off all of the lights, sing the song, and shine the flashlight on a word. Have a child say the sounds in that word and put them together to "read" the word. Repeat this song and shine on another word to be read!
