This is a set of first grade phonics lessons that focuses on the spelling patterns of the long a vowel sound. There are four individual sections: CVCe (consonant- vowel- consonant-silent e), CVCe words with initial consonant blends, vowel team "ai", and vowel team "ay".
Each section has a mini-lesson that acts as introduction to the concept; demonstrating the transition between words with short vowel sounds to those with long vowels sounds based on the spelling patterns. Specifically, the CVCe lessons (including with consonant blends) show words in flashcard form showing how a words changed just by adding a silent e. In the case for the "ai" and "ay" vowel team lessons also uses a flashcards format, but incorporates vowel/rime substitution to demonstrate the vowel sound changes.
It is designed to provide students the opportunity to practice reading CVC (consonant-vowel- consonant) and those CVC words with initial consonant blends words fluently. It is also designed to further practice fluency by providing an opportunity for the student read words with similar spellings and recognizing how subtle changes effect not only word pronunciation, but meaning. All this aids in reading and writing development.
This scripted lesson can be led whole class at the carpet area or in small groups. Large Century Gothic font used for readability. This lesson also can be used at the kindergarten level, in a small group, to provide additional support for those students who are performing above grade level. It can be used at the second grade level for those who might need extra support reading words with vowel teams.
Specific standards/objectives are listed after the title slide.
