TAT 2 Task 3: Technology Production 3

Unit Overview

This instructional unit is five days long. The unit is a review of how to identify vowel

sounds in written words. This unit is written for first grade students who have already completed

instruction in vowel sound identification. This modified plan of instruction includes the new

technology tools that will be integrated into the unit.

The unit is five lessons in length. Two lessons are two hours long and the remaining three

lessons are one hour long. This unit goes through short vowels and long vowel spelling patterns

to help students better understand when a word has a long vowel sound and when it has a short

vowel sound.

Performance Objectives

The following is a list of instructional objectives used in this unit plan:

1. Students will be able to correctly identify 20 short and long vowel sounds, given on

flashcards, in 1 minute

2. Students will be able to correctly read 20 written CVC words in 2 minutes without blending

3. Students will be able to correctly read 20 written CVCE words in 2 minutes without blending

4. Students will be able to correctly read 20 written words with long vowels in 2 minutes without

blending.

5. Students will be able to read 20 written words with a mix of long and short vowels in 2

minutes without blending.

Instructional Strategies

There are many instructional strategies used in this instructional unit. There are drills

where students are asked to repeat vowel sounds and blend words. After drills, there are student
TAT 2 Task 3: Technology Production 4

lead presentations. In these presentations students will start by blending words. Each slide on the

PowerPoint has a new letter, therefore, students say each sound individually. After blending, full

words will show up on the screen, where students will be asked to think about the word, then say

the word. The students will then read a story that has the focus vowel sounds in it.

Next, there will be a small group instruction time, where students will be back to the

teacher table to work on a targeted area. While working with these small groups, additional

students will be using whisper phones to do blending drills. When students have completed the

word drills, they will have access to technology. Students will use their Chromebook to get onto

Spelling City or Starfall depending on the lesson. This unit also involves independent learning

where students will be reading, blending, and practicing vowel sounds by themselves.

The final instructional strategy used in each of the lessons will be formative assessment.

This assessment will be given through a technology platform called Quizzizz. Student will log

into their Chromebook and click on the link to enter the quiz. The quiz will determine further

instruction.

Materials and Resources

In this instructional unit, there are a wide variety of materials used. There will be flashcards with

vowels on them. These flashcards have both capital and lowercase letters. The unit also uses a

PowerPoint presentation with blending and word building activities. Whisper phones will also be

used in this unit to give students an opportunity to hear themselves saying the sounds they are

reading. This unit also utilizes word drill materials with CVC, CVCE, and long vowel words.

Word fans with CVC words will also be available for students to practice reading. Stories are

also used in this lesson to get in-text reading practice. This unit will use the smartboard to

present information. The smartboard allows content to be presented through technology as well
TAT 2 Task 3: Technology Production 5

as giving the ability to write necessary information. The students will also use their chromebooks

to use added technology in the lesson. The Chromebooks will be used for formative assessment

through the tool Quizzizz. Chromebooks will also be used to enrich student learning through two

programs, Spelling City and Starfall. With the two enriching programs, students will need to

have headphones, which will allow the students hear the words being spelled.
