Product Description
This product was created to be your introductory lesson to the schwa. The schwa is the most common sound in the English Language, yet for many, is a difficult concept to teach. WELL NO MORE!! After viewing the presentation, working with the word cards and task cards, and using the supplemental worksheets, both you and your students will become experts at not only identifying the schwa in words, but will be able to teach this skill to others!

The task cards included are a great alternative to worksheets! They can be used in a variety of ways. Students can use them individually, in pairs, small groups, or as a whole group activity. After a read aloud, they work great as a Center Activity, or as an assessment. For older students, or those working in a Reader’s Workshop Model, they can be used as part of independent work. Another option is to simply print out Task Cards Set #2 and the Student Recording Sheet in grayscale, and provide them to students as a "packet" to be worked on as a "When You're Finished" project.

Simply print out the cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock before laminating, to make them extra sturdy. Store them either in a basket, plastic baggie, or envelope, or hole punch each card and store on a binder ring for easy access. If I haven’t yet made my permanent, sturdy colored task cards, I will just print the set out in grayscale and have students work with them as a paper packet. This comes in especially handy if you don’t have a color printer, too. Saves lots of ink!
