Monday Project Read---Unit 26 Skill: schwa symbol and sound


Teacher will display the schwa symbol, page 26-5. In this lesson, you will learn about the schwa symbol and sound.

The schwa can be compared to a UFO. It is a vowel sound that can appear in any word or syllable. It hovers above the vowel with upside down e symbol.

Example: pilot

The schwa makes the vowel say short u, the short u sound, and makes the syllable weak. This is called the unaccented syllable.

Blend the two syllables together pi---lot. When blending the syllables together, drop your voice on the second syllable with the schwa sound for the o. The second syllable is unstressed.

Again, facts about the schwa: 1. Makes the vowel say short u sound.

2. Makes the syllable weak.

Teacher will pass out worksheet 26-11. With teacher guidance, students will syllabicate words into syllable patterns and place the schwa symbol (upside down e) over the schwa vowel in each word.
