Lessons in my Jim Jams

Because I miss my students, I’ve decided to conduct and record a free half-hour word-study session every day. There is no age limit, children just need to be able to copy things down at a reasonable pace. It is more for primary than secondary students, but I’m open to suggestions.

Lesson 1: The W-Effect – The letter <w> can have an effect on certain vowels. Find out what in this video.

Lesson 2: CVC and Vowel Suffixes – How to change a certain kind of base

Lesson 3: The Letter Y – Is is a consonant? Is it a vowel? What is it for? 

Lesson 4: Final Silent E – What is it doing at the end of words and when do we let it go?

Lesson 5: Adding Suffixes to word-final Y and Final Silent E words
