a

Y as a Vowel - Phonics Story Lesson

hello my name is Inga with task viscom

today I'm going to present to you the

phonics story of Super Why as we try to

understand wise role as a vowel

why is a consonant that makes the sound

yeah as in yellow but why can you can

also be used as a vowel to replace E or

I I'm going to tell you the story of

Super Why

help-help said literally somebody please

help me I'm scared to be at the end of a

word

dun dun dun da da dun dun dun

Super Why to the rescue

literally what's wrong oh I'm so scared

super why I'm scared to be at the end of

a word all by myself and make my long e

sound don't worry

e let me help let me take your place

oh really super why oh that would be

great thank you

and so we see that at the end of a four

letter or more word we will find why

making the long e sound this word is

happy

why is acting as a vowel in place of E

help-help said little I somebody please

help me I'm so scared

dun dun dun duh dun dun dun

Super Why to the rescue little I what's

wrong

Oh super why I'm so glad you came I'm so

scared to be at the end of a little word

all by myself and say my long I sound

well I I'm going to help you let me take

your place

oh really

Super Why really thank you thank you so

much and so we find at the end of a

three letter or less word we find why

and we find that why makes the I sound

let's look at Super Why in action

Denton done did i don't don't--i Super

Why to the rescue

look at these words in which Super Why

has come to the rescue

here we see the word sk y now in order

to determine what's an y is going to

make in this word we need to know the

number of letters in the word one two

three remember if there are three

letters or less than that means super y

is going to make the long e sound so

this word is sky let's consider this

word L uck Y in this word we see Super

Why to the rescue

what sound is he going to make in order

to determine what sound he's going to

make we must count up the number of

letters in the word one two three four

five that's more than three letters

therefore Super Why is going to make the

long e sound so this word sounds out as

lucky let's look at this word once again

we're going to count up the number of

letters in the word to determine what

sounds Super Why is going to make one

two three four five six seven that's

more than three letters therefore we are

going to guess that Super Why is going

to make the long e sound and in fact he

does in this word he makes the sound e

and this word is pronounced grouchy look

at this little word this little word

ends in E well to tell you Part B of

this story little e wasn't scared when

he was at the end of a short word and

had to make his e sound in fact if you

find a word that's three letters or less

that ends in an e by itself then you

know that E is going to

make it short sound so in this word

little e is going to make the e sound

and this word sounds out me let's look

at this word in this word we see Y in

the middle of a word now usually y when

he makes his consonant sound likes to be

at the beginning of a word and so he's

here occupying the place of a vowel the

vowel he occupies when he is in the

middle of a word is I he either makes

eyes long sound or short sound in this

word Y is going to make eyes long sound

cycle consider this word my once again

we count up the number of word of

letters one two

therefore it's three letters or less so

we are going to guess

y is going to make the long I sound and

he does this word sounds out my look at

this word over here here Y is at the end

of a one two three four five letter word

and sometimes little e just want some

moral support in order to help it's make

its e sound at the end and why there is

going to act as a double e

and E and E together always make the e

sand but sometimes II Y will make the a

sound so the best thing to do is to try

it try long e and then try short e a

this word is a long I sound at the end

money

this word here is a three-letter word 1

2 3 so we are going to guess why being

at the end is going to make the long I

sound and in fact he does this word is

dry now this word though it has 1 2 3 4

5 6 7 8 9 letters in the word you might

initially guess that Super Why is going

to make the EE sound but notice that

this is actually a compound word made up

of two words butter and then fly because

it is made up of two words and this

second word is really only three letters

long

we should guess that Y is going to make

the I sound but you can try both sounds

and see which one works

I hope you've appreciated your lesson

today as you can see why-- loves to come

to the rescue of scared e and scared

little I when they are at the end of

words and I hope you will join me at
