Product Description
This multisensory PDF resource focused on the most common vowel sound, “Schwa.” Though the schwa sound is the most common vowel sound, it is the most misunderstood vowel sound. But the good news is, this is a great starter resource for students and adults to gain a better understanding and comfort level! One of the best parts of understanding the “schwa,” is the knowledge that syllables with schwa are unaccented / unstressed!
If you know a syllable has a schwa, then it is unaccented – helping to quickly identify the accent pattern of a multisyllabic, or polysyllabic words.
The other aspect identified within this multisensory resource that will help demystify “schwa” is the knowledge that two syllable compound words do not have “schwa” sounds. Why? Compound words are generally two individual/one-syllable words “compounded” together. Compound words do not have a schwa sound.
Additional focus related to schwa includes:
Multisensory mini-lesson identifying the “schwa” vowel concept
Identification of basic schwa suffixes
Writing development focuses on schwa and picture to improve writing skills
Use of a graphic organizer to support writing – called Writing “Trigger” Words
