FIRST WEEK'S INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOON TALK DICTATION


MOON TALK DIRECTIONS


READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS SEVERAL TIMES UNTIL YOU ARE CONFIDENT

LOOK BELOW FOR MOON TALK:

The student is to listen to pronunciation of sounds that formed together make a word not found in the English language. The student is to write down the word as he or she hears it. Each moon word is to be corrected before proceeding to the next one.

The student imagines a rocket trip to the moon and makes up a meaning for each moon word. i.e. On the moon I comb my shepet and see with my shumep. I walk with my chemat.

THE WORDS ARE TO BE WRITTEN WITHOUT THE DOTS. THE DOTS ARE PUT THERE TO HELP YOU SEPARATE THE PARTS OF THE WORDS WITH THE VOWEL SOUNDS FOR EASIER PRONUNCIATION ON YOUR PART WHILE DICTATING. SAY THE ENTIRE WORD SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY. YOUR STUDENT SHOULD WRITE ONLY WHAT HE OR SHE HEARS. YOUR STUDENT SHOULD WRITE THE WORDS BELOW WITHOUT ANY DOTS:

THE VOWELS ARE SHORT VOWEL SOUNDS:

EXAMPLE:
SAY THIS: She.pet.shu.mep.che.mat
YOUR STUDENT SHOULD WRITE THIS: Shepetshumepchemat

TODAY USE THESE WORDS FOR SHORT VOWEL MOON WORD DICTATION
