Whether you call them word families or word lines, the groups of words containing the long vowel sounds are crucial for students to master in learning to read. Beginning readers learn to decode words by sounding them out (blending the sound-spelling patterns). Phonics instruction will find these PowerPoint lessons for the Long vowel sounds to be extremely beneficial in reading instruction. Each sound in a word will appear for 2 seconds and then be followed by the subsequent sound. The title page shows the possible spellings for the sounds. Vowels will appear in red, consonants will appear in black, silent letters will appear in gray, and suffixes will appear in turquoise. These lessons are ideal for those teachers who have projectors connected to their classroom computer. They can also be used with small groups on one computer.
