First, students are prompted to say the short vowel sound of a CVC word. The vowel is in red so the reader’s attention is drawn to the vowel.
Next, students are prompted to read the CVC word with an animated tracking finger.
The next slide in the series shows the same word with a silent e added. Two fingers prompt the reader to say the long vowel sound of the CVCe word.
The last slide in the series prompts students to read the CVCe word with an animated tracking finger.
