PHONICS FRIDAY is back from vacation!! It's been a busy week with my anniversary and my daughter getting braces. It took me a moment to process that Friday had snuck up on me:)
Today's Phonics Friday is dedicated to my genre pack editor Roxanne:) I really appreciated her feedback and assistance!
This mini lesson focuses on the double vowel syllable (vowel teams).
Although the "rule" the first vowel says its name is not universal it does apply most of the time.
This lesson begins with a student clicking the boat to access a song that introduces the lesson target. My kids love this song with the catchy tune of the first vowel does the talking and the second vowel does the walking. I hope yours do too!
First go over the rule of the pattern that the mini lesson targets.
I just added this slide while writing this post tonight.
It is important for students to understand, recognize
& understand the objectives of the lesson.
When introducing a new syllable type it is important
to demonstrate how to mark up words containing this pattern.
1. A scoop for each syllable.
2. Circle the vowel team because this syllable may not always be long.
3. A "d" to stand for the double vowel syllable.
Practice having the students read and identify the pattern/sound.
Then practice, practice, and practice!!
This lesson includes a sort, writing the "double vowel" word,
a word building activity, & basketball hangman.
All of these activities help reinforce the double vowel syllable!!
I hope you enjoyed this PHONICS FRIDAY!!
I would love to hear how you teach vowel teams.
