Additional Information

Day 1 – You’ll start with the famous circle maps/chart! Students will brainstorm words for the vowel pattern while the teacher draws the picture to represent the words the students come up with.
After circle map/chart students will do some independent work to read cvc-e words and match the words to the picture. This is a great assessment piece!
Day 2 – You will work on building words and reading cvc & cvc-e words & understanding how the bossy e, silent e or magic e changes the vowel sound. After you build and read the words, you will write the words independently.
What was my data in 2017?  The pre-assessment showed 40% of my students could hear the vowel sounds and read the words. Following vowel bootcamp, our mastery went up to 75%!  Students will practice these skill in centers and during guided reading!
