  • LESSON 106 OBJECTIVES Exercise 1 When identifying the sounds that compose words, students now work with long-vowel sounds and a variety of consonant blends. Exercise 2 students review a previously taught phonemic generalizationthe sound /a/ is usually spelled ay when it occurs at the end of a word. Students then spell words that follow this generalization. After considerable practice, students will spell these words automatically, without conscious reference to the generalization. Exercise 3 Students write two sentences from dictation. Both sentences are made of words students have spelled many times before. This activity, which occurs almost daily, serves both as a spelling review and as a model for how common words are used. Exercise 4 Students are introduced to a new model sentence, one that includes words that are significantly more difficult than those introduced in Level A model sentence exercises. A pair of commonly confused words, thought and through, are taught in the same sentence. The context of the sentence prevents students from confusing the two words. Exercise 5 Students write a series of words from dictation. This exercise is a straightforward review of words taught previously. Exercise 6 Students refer to the picture and write a sentence that tells what the girl could be saying. The purpose of cartoon exercises is to facilitate the transition from spelling words in isolation to spelling them in sentence writing. Students are prompted to use words they have learned in previous lessons to compose the sentences.
