Product Description

This unit is a package of 10 activities and games that are designed to make it easy for students to learn to read r-controlled syllable type words. There are 6 syllable types, and r-controlled is one of the six types. These syllables are called –r-controlled because the –r is in control and the vowel is out of control when sounding out the word. Instead, of the vowels making their normal sounds, the –r decides what sound the vowel is going to make. Reading and spelling r-controlled words require visual memory and experience. There are five -r-controlled vowel spellings -ar, -er, -ir, -or, -ur. These five vowel spellings only make 4 different sounds, and once students grasp this simple concept, reading -r-controlled words become much easier for them.

Also, this packet contains a word work notebook that is super student and teacher friendly. Students are able to learn quality word skills in just minutes, and teachers have everything they need at their fingertips to teach the skills in a jiffy with all preparation complete.

These 10 games will teach students a few consistent tips to remember when reading these kinds of words:

1. Climb a Tree

2. Grow a Centipede

3. Football Frenzy

4. Dominoes

5. Snail Shell

6. Wild Animal Race

7. Clear the Board

8. Feed the Monster
