This interactive powerpoint will grab your students attention while teaching them how to blend and read long u words containing the
-ew and -ui spelling patterns. The powerpoint starts off with a review of long u words containing the u consonant e and -ue spelling patterns. I write words containing those spelling patterns on post-it notes and stick them around the room before the lesson. Then I print off the second slide so each student has one to record their words on when I send them off on their scavenger hunt. Each slide will guide the students through learning how to decode words containing the long u: -ew and -ui spelling patterns. The slides feature sounds and animations that will keep the students engaged! Students will also be able to actively participate in decoding words as they "blow" up space rocks to uncover words.
