Phonics and Spelling-Students use phonics and other strategies to decode and spell unfamiliar words while reading and writing. Identify and pronounce r-controlled vowel patterns in words (e.g., ar, or, er).
Teachers Tips When introducing the R-controlled vowels, become "Bossy R.” Pretend to receive a phone call and have to go to the office. (Make sure you have someone to watch the classroom) Return as "Bossy R." Have a hat to cover your hair (got a free one at Vista-Print with Bossy R on it for next year), put on a large sweatshirt that has a foam Bossy R on, change your shoes, and wear huge comical sunglasses to complete disguise. Make sure even the most observant students could be fooled that it isn’t you. Enter the room with a loud entrance. Have R-controlled word cards passed out to the students and they would have to say them. Act very bossy and annoying. The kids will love it and they remember "Bossy R!” Great introduction into the PowerPoint presentation lesson.
Teacher Tips Continued Before class have the read around the room materials prepared (can be found here)here Before presenting PowerPoint (starts with the movie) adjust the volume appropriately Introduce the triplets focusing on ER, IR and UR Read around the room activity (allow 20-30 mins) Cover additional words (some on spelling list) Play Bossy R JeopardyBossy R Jeopardy Can go to the computer lab and use r-controlled pages on starfall.com (included on additional aids slide-slide 16)
