Unit 5 will review and practice how to read and spell multisyllabic words. Unit 5 also focuses on the suffixes-less,-ness,-ful,-ment,-able,-ish,and -en.
The students will review categorizing suffixes as vowel suffixes or consonant suffixes. Vowel suffixes begin with vowels and consonant suffixes begin with consonants.
The students will review identifying and isolating the baseword or root word, in words that have suffixes. When they "tap out" words with suffixes, they will "tap out" and blend the baseword first then blend the word a second time with the addition of the word's suffix.
The vowel teams introduced in this unit are: au and aw.
