What’s Included In This Resource?
- (used to teach/analyze each word):
- There are a total of 20 words in your slide deck.
- There are 10 spelling patterns. For each spelling pattern, there are two words: one for modeling during your lesson and one for guided practice.
- Included spelling patterns (and yes! Many of these are long vowel teams because they ARE diphthongs):
- /aɪ/ – long i vowel teams
- /eɪ/ – long a vowel teams
- /əʊ/ – long o vowel teams
- /aʊ/ – <ow> sound
- /eə/ – /air/ r-controlled teams
- /ɪə/ – /ear/ r-controlled teams
- /ɔɪ/ – <oy> sound
- /ʊə/ – <yu> long u sound
- & then two days of review words
- Not quite sure what the syllable division rules are? Or what a schwa vowel sound is? Or what to point out when focusing on morphology? Don’t worry… the teacher guide will walk you through all of this! It includes a detailed analysis of each word in your deck. From how to divide the word into syllables, to spelling patterns, to word parts, to pronunciation.
- If you want your students to follow along paper/pencil as you are analyzing the word(s) of the day, print out the student recording sheet so they can –
- identify the part of speech
- label syllables
- label short and long vowels
- circle digraphs, blends, glued sounds, vowel teams, or silent letters
- highlight roots, prefixes, and suffixes
What Does The Routine Look Like?
- Step 1: Prep by printing out your teacher guide and making copies of the student recording sheet
- Step 2: Put your Google Slides presentation in slideshow mode and as you work your way through the teacher guide mini-lesson, click for the animations to occur on the Slide
- Step 3: You have two words for each pattern. Use word #1 to model during your lesson, and then use word #2 for guided practice.
