Mindful, Fun, Multisensory Materials for Learning the Vowel Combinations or Vowel Teams

One of the most difficult reading concepts to learn in the English language is the vowel combinations or vowel teams.  Well, not anymore.  I have made the process fun, memorable and multisensory with my workbook entitled Vowel Combinations Made Easy.  It was created for my own students and I have found it to be extremely successful.  Students learn their vowel combinations by finding them hidden in images, coloring, doing mazes and playing card games.  What's more, I am now offering a free sampling of my workbook, so you can have the opportunity to see some of the activities.

Teaching Inference Skills Can Be Fun



 

Teaching students about how to make inferences can be challenging.  Unlike most of the concrete learning that they encounter, this is an abstract notion.  However, most students love the idea of finding or uncovering a hidden message.  So, explaining that, like a detective, they can solve the secret code, students will find this both appealing and exciting. Here are four activities that you can do to help even the youngest of learners find joy in searching for inferences. 
  1.    Look through magazine images and see if you can uncover any hidden messages.
  2.    When traveling look at billboards and see if you can point out any inferences.
  3.    Look at the images on book covers and see what kind of hidden messages they might include that tell you a little bit about the story.
  4.    When watching TV pay attention to the advertisements.  What kinds of secret messages are implied?

If you would prefer to use a 60 page workbook, with images, activities and games, you can always purchase Making Inferences, The Fun and Easy Way to Understand and Practice Implied Meaning.  I also offer a free downloadable sample @  CLICK HERE
