ESSENTIAL QUESTION: (Unit)

V.

PROCEDURE:

This is an introductory lesson on r-controlled vowels for the students. It will be followed by a series of lessons
that introduces more vowel-r combinations and looks at r-controlled vowels more closely. The students are
familiar with the long and short vowel sounds, including a, e, i, o, u, sometimes w, and sometimes y. We
previously did activities where they had to identify long and short vowel sounds as a class, in small groups, and
individually.

Day 1
The teacher will review the short vowel sounds for a, e, I, o and u
This week we will learn about a type of syllable that changes the way a vowel sounds. Its called an rcontrolled syllable because the r controls the vowel sound. It is important to learn about r-controlled
syllables because many words contain these sounds. Being able to recognize and read r-controlled
syllables will allow you to read many more words.
Its also known as Bossy R
Teacher will show the students the Bossy R anchor chart
Teacher will then introduce ar and show the you tube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?

Have students come up with some ar words to write down on the anchor chart
Students will then do the Pirate sort (ar and sort a words)
Day 2.
Students will watch the you tube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMwCnSSMB-Q reviewing
ar words and introducing or words.
Students will help teacher come up with or words to add to the anchor chart
Students will then do an or sort with partners
Day 3.
Students will watch the youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY8bR9sRARQ which
introduces er, -ur and ir.
Students will add er words to the anchor chart
In pairs students will work on the ar, -or and er popcorn word sort worksheet

Day 4
Students will think of ur and ir words to add to the anchor chart.
Students will do a fly swatter game where they have to hit the word that has either ur or ir in it. This is
done in teams but as a whole group
We will then as a class do a whole bossy r review.

Day 5
Students will be shown three different bossy r crafts.
First is the bossy r pirate
Second is the bossy r popcorn
Third is the bossy r flowers

Students will have to pick which craft they are going to do


Once chosen they will cut out all the materials and create their bossy r craft
Students work will be hung in the hallway for the other students in the building to see.
