Chunk that Word

Sing the song to learn the strategy, then chunk long unfamiliar words into parts to read them.

If you find there's a word
That you just don't know
You can chunk it into parts
You can chunk the parts you know!
You can tie it all together
In a tidy little bow
If you find there's a word that you just don't know.
Ch-unk that word you can chunk that word.
Ch-unk that word you can chunk that word.
If you find there's a word
That you just don't know
You can chunk it into parts
And away you go!

Lonely Vowel

Sing the song to learn the strategy then identify long-o or long-e words.

We're Lonely Old Vowels
At the end of a word.
We're alone but we want to be heard!
When you find us there
You know we'll want to share
Our long vowel sound with you.
So, no, and go
Make the long-vowel sound of "o".
And he, she, and we
When you happen to be me!
You make the long-vowel sound of "e".

Vowel Teams

Sing the song to learn the strategy, then identify words containing long-vowel digraphs.

When vowel teams go a walkin'
The first vowel does the talkin'.

Y Can Be a Vowel

Y can be vowel
Like AEIOU
Because Y can say long I or E
Wow! Y is a vowel!
In words like "my" and in "try"
And in "hazy" and "lazy"
Now let's go "crazy"!
