SHORT/LONG VOWELS and VOWEL COMBO


MOON TALK DICTATION


PREPARE IN ADVANCE FOR MOON TALK DICTATION

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

che.tam.fu.met.chle.match

thi.phuj.whu.meg

whuz.ghep.ghof

gnub.gnad.knad.ed

knub.pham.phub

bram.et.crot.ug.drup.et

trid.ed.snid.ad.spu.did

stats.wig.et.sma.tip

twi.man.bla.tid.clup.ep

flamp.glump.plim.pin

THE VOWEL ARE LONG VOWEL SOUNDS. APPLY NO RULES. JUST SAY THE VOWELS WITH THE LONG VOWEL SOUND. TELL YOUR STUDENT TO WRITE ONLY WHAT HE OR SHE HEARS:

THE VOWELS ARE VOWEL COMBINATIONS:
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. If a student writes ai for ay or ee for ea, he or she is to be commended for writing the work phonetically correct, as ee sounds like ea and ai sounds like ay. However, ask your student if there is another way to spell that sound. For instance, if you dictated paim and your student wrote paym, tell him or her that it is correct but ask if there's another way to spell paym.

EXAMPLE:
SAY THIS: Shee.peat.shay.maip.choam.mait
YOUR STUDENT SHOULD WRITE THIS: Sheepeatshaymaipchoamait
