    Vowel Village Example to Share? Level 2

    Does anyone have a Vowel Village to share with me? I admit I skipped this project and am trying to visualize it. If someone has done theirs and is willing to share, I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you!


    Re: Vowel Village Example to Share? Level 2

    Hi, Heather.

    I have not created a visual example, but I can encourage you in this way:

    The activity is designed to promote categorization. You are simply helping the student(s) find words with similar vowel patterns and place them together.

    You could do this on the board or on a large poster. Just draw a small village with different sized homes. In your lesson plans, the larger mansion is filled with silent e words, because we study so many of them. Your cul-de-sac with homes containing r-controlled vowels (the -ar house, -er house, -ir house) will emphasize the way the r "curves" the vowel. Whenever you encounter a word with a similar pattern, add to its correct home.

    If you prefer a more kinesthetic activity, you could create a village model with blocks on the floor. Then insert tiny word-card people to live inside the home. Or design any way you would like! Of course, if you do not have the time, vision, or inclination for such a village, you can create simple lists. The important task is categorizing words, so the vowel patterns become more recognizable and familiar.

    I hope that helps --
