2. Mark the vowel and consonant letters in these words:

$&\text{apple} && \text{magic} && \text{knee} && \text{government}\\&\text{vcccv} && \text{cvcvc} && \text{ccvv} && \text{cvcvcccvcc}\\\\&\text{write} && \text{their} && \text{often} && \text{stop}\\&\text{ccvcv} && \text{ccvvc} && \text{vccvc} && \text{ccvc}\\\\&\text{lunch} && \text{women} && \text{phone} && \text{quiet}\\&\text{cvcc} && \text{cvcvc} && \text{ccvcv} && \text{ccvvc}$

5. What do we mark with <c>, vowel letters or consonant letters? Consonant letters

6. What four letters are always vowels? $\underline{}$

7. What three letters are sometimes vowels, sometimes consonants? $\underline{}$

8. Write a word in which <y> is a consonant: ANSWERS WILL VARY.

9. Write a word in which $<\mathrm{u}>$ is a consonant: ANSWERS WILL VARY.

10. Write a word in which <w> is a consonant: ANSWERS WILL VARY.

11. Write a word in which <y> is a vowel: ANSWERS WILL VARY.

12. Write a word in which $<\mathrm{u}>$ is a vowel: ANSWERS WILL VARY.

13. Write a word in which <w> is a vowel: ANSWERS WILL VARY.

Word Scrambles. Unscramble the letters and you will spell some of the words in recent lessons:

$&\text{klaw} && \underline{{walk}} && \text{thiew} && \underline{{white}}\\&\text{tenx} && \underline{{next}} && \text{ruet} && \underline{{true}}\\&\text{ptso} &&\underline{{stop}*} && \text{tique}&& \underline{\text{quite}**}\\&\text{ehongu} && \underline{{enough}} && \text{yeerv} && \underline{{every}}\\&\text{enequ} && \underline{{queen}} && \text{sawaly} && \underline{{always}}\\&\text{enmow} && \underline{{women}} && \text{dulow} && \underline{{would}}\\&\text{gungaela} && \underline{{language}} && \text{witer} && \underline{{write}}$

$*$ Or pots, post, opts, tops, spot

$**$ Or quiet

Teaching Notes.

1. Word Scrambles again get students looking carefully for and at words from the current lessons. They can also help students develop a better sense of the normal patterns of consonants and vowels in English words. For instance, in this Scrambles they could recognize that <lk>, <kw>, <wk> and the like are not likely opening strings in the word they are trying to unscramble. In enough they can begin to see that <gh> is a common combination. In time working Scrambles can help them see such things as the fact that many words end in silent final <e> and that <y> tends to be either at the beginning or the end. All such things are part of the wide realm of tactical information that good spellers should have.
