Phonics

RE-INTRODUCE THE SCHWA VOWEL SOUND Explain that wh en words have two
or more syllables, we usually say one syllable with more stress. The vowel in the quieter
syllable sometimes has neither its long nor its short vowel sound. Tell children that this is
called the schwa vowel sound.
Write on smartboard w, a, g, o, n for wagon. Read the word aloud, emphasizing the first
syllable, wag.
Separate the letter cards as two syllables, wag and on. Read aloud the first syllable. Then
read the second syllable with the short o vowel sound /o/. When I read the second syllable
with the short o vowel sound /o/?/, the word does not sound correct. Read the syllables
again, but read the second syllable with the long o vowel sound /O/. The second syllable
does not sound correct with the long o vowel sound /O/. Reread, stressing the first
syllable and using the schwa vowel sound /S/ for the second syllable. Point out that you
read the word correctly.

WRITE AND READ WORDS WITH THE SCHWA SOUND Write the words below on
the board. Read aloud each word and have children echo your reading. Ask a volunteer to
circle the vowel in each word that has the schwa vowel sound.
