GK-1 Initial Consonant Substitution: Practice
With the GK tasks, you will see if students can make different words. We will only practice one of the GK tasks since the process for administering each task is the same.
Locate GK-1 Initial Consonant Substitution handouts on page 12 and page 13 in your participant handout. Review the directions for GK-1. For the practice item, you will show students how you take the letter c and put it in front of the letters “og” to make the word “cog.” You will let students make the word “cog.” Then, you will ask them to try to make other words.
When you administer this task you will need to look at the task page for the practice items and at the student record sheet for the task items.
After you are done with the practice item, the only thing you say for each word is: Can you make the word ____?
For example, look at number one. The item shows blank-o-g, and then shows the letter “h.” So, to give this item you will say, Can you make the word hog?
To give item number 2 you will say: Can you make the word log?
To give item number 3 you will say: Can you make the word pig?
Before you begin, review the four pieces necessary to give the task.
- Letters - if you don’t have magnetic letters, you can use the paper letters in the packet.
- The task description on the task page of the Teacher’s Guide
- The scoring box from the Individual Student Record Sheet
- The picture of the magnetic board for the student to use
Now it is time to practice. Remember that on this task, you can only give feedback on the practice items, but not at any other time.
