Students will explore how the i_e, igh and y=i patterns 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 i_e, igh and y=i.
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 when doing a blind sort.
Day 2: Students will read the words that contain the i_e, igh and y=I vowel pattern to find the words that sound the same.
Day 3: Students will make words by filling in the correct vowel pattern. Then they will use those words to find rhyming words and fix misspelled words in the sentence.
Day 4: They will find words in the story and record the words in the chart.
Day 5: Make sentences using words they have practiced.
On day 5 I usually give the quiz after students have completed the last page. I also have students sort words every day.
