This is a great multisensory lesson that is perfect for students developing decoding skills. While students may appear to be strong with decoding, there are times when students have not mastered the skill to 100% accuracy - and decoding needs to be a skill at 100% mastery! So, this lesson focused on the types of vowels: short, long, diphthong, r-controlled (also known as "bossy r," and of course, schwa.
This is multisensory because of the use of visual coding to support decoding of words for ease of syllable identification, which then translates into word recognition and eventually improved reading fluency! How basic but how necessary for students to have at mastery level!
There is a page for coding practice of both one and two syllable words. Page 45 is the answer key. However, with the answer key, if your child is wrong, or believes his/her coding is correct, that is the time to listen and discuss. Sometimes, when students share their reasoning, it makes sense. And, once the discussion has occurred, students have changed vagueness to potentially understanding or MASTERY!
