Students will explore how the au and aw vowel teams work in words. Each day they will practice applying the patterns in a different way. By the end of the week, students should be comfortable with spelling words using the au and aw pattern.
This ‘within word’ word study packet serves as a great resource for whole group, small group, individual practice or during literacy centers.
Day 1: After you study the vowel pattern, students will cut words and sort them based on the rule. Headings are included but you can not include them as a challenge.
Day 2: Students will read the words that contain the au or aw vowel pattern to find the words that sound the same.
Day 3: Students will make words.
Day 4: They will find words in the story.
Day 5: Make sentences using words
On day 5, I usually give the quiz after students have completed the last page. I also have students sort words on day 1, 2 and 3. On day 4, I have them glue the words on the sorting mat.
