This PowerPoint bundle includes 2 PowerPoint lessons and one long a phonics story so students can highlight the long a patterns they find as they read.
This set also contains a shared reading phonics story to help your students connect the spelling patterns to reading.
You will LOVE this set for teaching phonics and introducing or reinforcing long vowel patterns.
This presentation was designed using the Cherry Cream Soda Font. Please download the font if you do not have it for the best quality viewing:
Lesson 1: PowerPoint 1—Students are introduced to listening for Long vs. Short A. After the picture flies in, the teacher identifies the picture. Student holds up the short or long sign, or “pinches” the correct area on the short/long pinch card (whichever materials the teacher prepares). Note: The pinch cards are “print and go”, while the signs are a little labor intensive, requiring hot glue and sticks.
Lesson 2: PowerPoint 2—The next PowerPoint has students connect the sound with the spelling pattern. The same pictures are used, but the pattern flies in first, then the rest of the word. Students are given an organizer and predict which pattern it will be by pointing to one of the headers on their paper. A second pinch card is optional if the teacher does not want the students to write the words. After the pattern flies in, students use the pattern to write the word. After students have written the word using the pattern, the rest of the word flies in. Continue until the end of the PowerPoint and review the culminating slides.
Seeing the sound represented as a pattern, will help students look for that pattern in their reading.
Lesson 3: Students read a long vowel story to use as a culminating activity. This helps students to connect spelling to reading. Students highlight the long A patterns in the story. The story is intended to be a shared reading (with teacher help), but I have had success with partnering students to work on the story who are older, yet below grade level readers (these students seem to have more sight words, but are missing phonics knowledge).
