The letter Yy
is quite a unique letter, in that it can be both a consonant
To complicate matters, the Y
has several different phonemes (sounds)
It can have a long e sound
, as in worry
, as well as a long i sound
, as in fly
With that in mind, I designed this Ys Guys & Spies packet, as recognizing special spellings for vowel sounds
is part of successful decoding & word recognition
Just like my best-selling ”Vowels & Villains”
packet, instead of students being frustrated and tripped up with “exceptions to the rules”, they are prepared and get excited when they find a “spy” that they can “jail”.
The packet includes
* A letter Y craftivity
, where students create 3 different “Y Guys “ writing the various Y words on the backs of their letters, or using the blank word strips, to write the words on, and then glue the strip to the bottom of their Y Guy.
* 3, Y Guys posters
to introduce the lesson, with a matching word poster
filled with lots of examples.
* A variety of worksheets
that build vocabulary, including “Jail the Spies”
* A “Letter Yy Word Booklet”
* A short, 2-page “Ys Guys” emergent reader
, with 36 Dolch sight words
* A graphing
extension of the last page in the emergent reader.
* 2 “Disguise” definition posters
* 2 “Wanted”
* 4 sorting mats
, to sort the 160, mini word cards
. Quick, easy & fun way to build vocabulary
. Includes matching worksheets for more practice.
* A “Ys Guys” spinner game
* Practice literacy & math
at the same time, with 4, number-strip puzzles
. Students color, write on words, cut & glue together to make a mosaic picture puzzle. Reinforces skip counting by 2s & 10s
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning tricky words, with the silly Spy Guys.
