This is an interactive lesson complete with teacher notes that explain interesting ways of introducing the variant vowel sounds : or, au, aw, al, er, ir, ur, ou and ow. I have discovered that the best way to teach fry words is using unforgettable stories that match the variant vowel sounds. In addition to the cute and funny stories, I have also included suggested drawings for each new sound that really helped my students manipulate difficult words instead of just memorizing them. You may have the students use the pen tool on your smartboard or in PowerPoint under the Presenter View. These simple drawings allowed my students to transfer the learning of the sounds, or, sh, aw, au, er, ir, ur, ou, ow, and many others to all of the words they see!
