The Schwa Sound
My first grader corrects me and says that I “shouldn’t make the schwa sound” when I help her learn her new vocabulary words. She tells me that “I’m saying everything wrong.”
I’m originally from MASSACHUSETTS and I’ve always spoken the same way, so can you tell me what they are told in the first grade classroom about the schwa sound? I don’t want to teach her the wrong way. Thanks for your help.
