A mini-lesson for the teacher that breaks down the rationale for the pattern, plus linguistic connections;
Pattern Rationale Example: A long a vowel sound is formed three ways: when there is an a_e, when there is a long a vowel team, and when the letter a is at the end of an open syllable.
Linguistic Connection Example: Vowels are letters that represent sounds that do not block your airstream when you say them.
