Lesson Objective: To practise and apply knowledge of unstressed vowels in polysyllabic words, including test.
In this lesson, we will apply our knowledge of unstressed vowels in polysyllabic words to further practise spellings, use a spelling strategy for the words in the spelling list from last spelling lesson, and take a test at the end of the lesson.
Spell at least 5 correctly.
In this story, there are 20 spelling mistakes. Each mistake is missing either a silent letter or an unstressed vowel.
Can you spot all the mistakes? Make a list, with all 20 words correctly spelled.
The Silent Spook
On a dark, cold autum night, all was quiet in the haunted librry. The our was twelve.
In the freezing tempratures, only one gostly old knight was frightningly flitting between the shelves. He had come out of his tom and left his casle on a shadowy iland, to find his missing sord.
All was silent and the spook floated about without a sound. He was num with cold and his every spooky bone and musle ached, but he was desprate to know where his property had gone.
He looked with intrest along the shelves, searching for a book about old weapons. At last, he found a refrence, written in an old book, to a rusty blade. It had been found under a stone at a nearby scool.
The gost raised a thum and shattered the silence with a cackling laugh.
'Marvllous!' he croaked. 'I have found you at last, after a hole night searching!'
Can you find 5 other polysyllabic words with unstressed vowels? You must understand the word and be able to use it correctly.
