What our Short “i” Spelling Words lesson plan includes
Lesson Objectives and Overview: Short “i” Spelling Words introduces students to words that have the short “i” vowel sound. Students will learn to identify words with this sound and how to spell them correctly. They will use word analysis skills and phonics to figure out the words during the spelling activities in the lesson.
This lesson divides the content into to sections, each with 12 spelling words with the short “i” sound. You may choose to introduce students to all 24 words at once if you prefer. The lists divide the words according to word family. The first set contains words that belong in the -it, -ig, and -ill word families. The second set contains words that belong in the -in, -ip, and -id word families.
Have the students start off by naming some words that contain this vowel sound. You can also provide examples of your own. Read the words on the top of the page for the first content page. If you are combining the sets, read the words on both content pages. Have the students cut out the words and say them aloud, emphasizing the short “i” sound in each word. Finally, have them organize the words into the right word families on the page. (There is a column for each word family.)
CREATE THE WORDS ACTIVITY
The activity requires students to pair up and practice spelling with each other. There is a table of 24 words with the short “i” sound. Students will cut out all 24 words on the page. Then they will take turns spelling each word with their partners.
SHORT “I” SPELLING WORDS PRACTICE WORKSHEET
The practice worksheet provides two lists of 12 blanks. This will essentially be a spelling test for the students. After you read each word, students will write them on the worksheet. If they get any wrong, they can work with someone to practice them further.
NAME THE PICTURE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
For the homework assignment, students will have two lists of pictures and words in a word bank. These correspond to the lists in the lesson. Students must match the words to the pictures, writing the word next to the correct picture.
