ENGAGE your students and KEEP their attention while you teach!
Help your students remember the phonics rule for when two vowels are together in a word. This mini-movie is repetitive and catchy and includes example words embedded within the song to help with memory association. The last 5 pages are teaching point pages which have words sorted by their vowel teams. The word sorts contain over 270 words that have vowel combinations.
Use the .mov file on your interactive whiteboard, Smart Board, or student computers to highlight words, vowel combinations, or reading strategies. Play "find the word" with your students in whole group or use as a literacy station. Locate the words that have this phonics rule on your word wall to help with reading and spelling. When they come to a word such as boat, remind them of the song, "oa says o, o, o."
