Got Vowels?

At yesterday’s Peace through Language Club meeting, we updated our vowel raps in Spanish and French. We decided to add a middle section with consonants for some additional practice that provides a little variation to the original raps. (Click here to learn more about the original raps we created last week, and here for the excitement this gave our club!)

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I have always taught and retaught the alphabet with special emphasis on the vowels. I feel that this one small action has really improved my students’ pronunciation! In Spanish, we even sound out words together saying only the vowels first. We repeat just the vowels until we’ve got it down, then we add the consonants to complete the word. Hopefully this rap will help my students learn the vowels even better from now on!!!

The image below is what you’ll see when you click to view the videos! They are graffiti-style letters designed by a tenth grade club volunteer named Dylan. We have heard that students really like the letters! What do you think?
