Activity Form: Standard
Grade: K, 1, 2, 3
Group Size: Small Group, Whole Class
Length: 5 minutes
Materials: Irregular Words II index cards (print them here)
Goal: Given a printed irregular word, say its sound ( irregword -> "irregword" )
Items: The set of irregular words for this lesson

What to do

  1. Arrange all the new irregular words on the board.
  2. Let's review these words. Pay attention because they are trick words.
  3. Point to each word in turn, model its sound, and have students repeat.
  4. Next, point to words randomly and let students say the word without your help. Give students individual turns. If students attempt to sound out a word before saying it, say: Remember, these are trick words, so you can't sound them out. Can you say this word without sounding out? Try it.
  5. If students mispronounce a word, model the correct way to say it and have them try again. Keep going until everyone has mastered these words.
  6. If time allows, to help students 'deep process' a word, ask an individual student, Can you make a sentence with the word around in it? Select a different word from today's set for each student. An alternative formulation you can use for variety is, I'll say the first part of a sentence and you have to make up an ending for it: The dog ran around and around the oak tree because... Student: ...there was a squirrel in it.
