Funtastic Phonics Level 3 – Long Vowel Sounds + Vowel Teams

   In level 3, students will start to learn a lot of different CVCe words and diphthong sounds. The transition from short vowel words to long vowel words can be a tricky one for many children.

   CVCe words are words that contain a consonant, vowel, consonant and then the letter e. These words can be extremely tricky because the “e” is actually silent, and the vowel between the two consonants becomes a long vowel.

   Diphthongs are the combination of two different vowel sounds that come together to create a distinct, new sound. Some common diphthongs include oi, oo and ow. Through this program, children will be able to blend, read and spell different words easily and confidently.

  Our Class Routine:

-       In the first 5 minutes, we greet the students and start the lesson with a revision of all the previous sounds and words.

-       From the 5th to 30th minute: During circle time, the children will focus on learning new sounds and practice reading with phonics and different activities.

-       From the 30th to 55th minute: Our booklets will help students practice their reading, blending and spelling skills.

-       From the 55th to 75th minute: It’s time for more fun activities and revision. Our teachers will reward our students by giving them smiley faces and stickers according to their performance at the end of their lessons.
