Reflection: Rigor Rockets Help Our Reading Skills Blast Off! - Section 2: Activity


The rigor increases during this lesson as the students have to determine if the word is a real CVC word or a nonsense CVC word. Determining if the word is real or not requires a student to draw on vocabulary knowledge.

It is important to have an educator sit at this work station in order to guide the discussion when students are trying to determine if the CVC word they have made is real or not. For example, many students have not had experience with the word “mob.” To many students, especially English Language Learners, this word will not be recognized as a real word. It will be up to the educator to clearly explain the meaning of this word to the students so they begin to understand its meaning and can draw on this knowledge when reading books at another time.
