We are learning about the schwa sound this week. Besides it being fun to say “schwa,” this is the most common sound in the English language. I had no idea about that until I was searching for songs to teach the sound. Well, despite it being common, there is nothing really to help teach the sound. Today, when I was teaching reading groups, a song just came to me and I hurried and scribbled it down on a notepad. The note was dark pink and I only had an orange pen so it was incredibly hard to read when I tried later on during the day. The song is a freebie in my TPT store so feel free to grab a copy. I would love to hear how you teach the schwa sound in your classroom and what you think of the song.
My friend Hilary at Rockin Teacher Materials is also having a sale. You have to check out her Math Mysteries. They are adorable and I have a few and will be buying more on Wednesday.
