Step-by-Step Guided Lesson
Step 1: Start Video
(Tips: Interact with the video by pausing, to ask questions or discuss information viewed with student.)
Step 2: Teach Lesson
Read Words with Phonogram patterns au, all, alk, alt, ald
Listen to this sound. /au/. Say the sound.
If you hear the /au/ sound in the words I say, show thumbs up.
Ready? Say the following words aloud and have the student to repeat the word. After I say the word, you say it. Then I will ask
for the signal. If the /au/ sound is in the word, show thumbs up. The student will respond by putting thumbs up when they hear
the /au/ sound: hall, draw, fraud, fold, aunt, tight, brave, jaw, because, law.
Look at this group of letters. Write ...all
... on the board or use letter cards to spell the pattern. ALL is read /all/. Read it with me. If
I put the letter m at the beginning of /all/, I make the word mall. I go to the mall to shop. Mall. What’s the word?
Look at this group of letters. Write ...alk
... on the board or use letter cards to spell the pattern. Alk is read /auk/. Read it with me.
If I put the letter t at the beginning of /auk/, I make the word talk. I talk on the phone. Talk. What is this word?
Look at this group of letters. Write ...alt
... on the board or use letter cards to spell the pattern. Alt is read /alt/. If I put the letter h
at the beginning of /alt/, I make the word halt. Halt means to come to a stop. Halt. What is this word?
Look at this group of letters. Write ...ald
... on the board or use letter cards to spell the pattern. ALD is read /ald/. Read it with me.
If I put the letter b at the beginning of /ald/, I make the word bald. The man’s head is bald. Bald. What is this word?
Read the words I made: mall, talk, halt, bald
Look at these words. What do you notice? How are these words alike?
When the letters ...a... and ...l... are side by side and followed by a consonant, the letter a usually says /au/.
Now we will practice reading words with these patterns. Place the word cards mall, talk, halt, and bald in a pocket chart or on the
table.
You will pick a card, read the word and place it under the word that has the same pattern.
Show the student the stack of word cards.
The student picks a card and reads it. Affirm correct response or provide corrective feedback. Continue until all the word cards have
been read and correctly placed under the appropriate column.
Have the student cut letter cards apart from the top of the Build it and Write it page.
I will say a word. You repeat the word. Spell the word using the letter cards. Then write the word on the lines below. Words
to spell and write: wall, stall, salt, palm, calm, stalk, small, wallet, Walter, hallway
Note and chart progress for the student.
