Teaching Notes.

1. It may be useful to follow up the four items dealing with $<\mathrm{u}>$ in class discussion. For instance, you might ask how we know that the $<\mathrm{u}>$ in would is a vowel (Answer: because it is not spelling the consonant sound [w] nor is it following the letter <q>). The same is true for the $<\mathrm{u}>$ in under and enough. How do we know that the $<\mathrm{u}>$ in quick is a consonant? (because it spells the sound [w] and it follows <q>, either of which conditions is enough to make it a consonant). You could then ask for examples of words in which $<\mathrm{u}>$ is a consonant but does not follow <q> (language, penguin, extinguish, jaguar, persuade, etc. — and pueblo) or of words in which $<\mathrm{u}>$ is a consonant but does not spell [w] (mosquito, antique, grotesque, mosque, unique, bouquet, croquet, etc.). For more information, see the teaching notes for Lesson 4.

This kind of word hunt could be the stuff of a regular bulletin board project: As students find words of the type being hunted for that week, they write them down on a list on the bulletin board and initial them. At the end of the week the champion word hunter is crowned.
