This program continues to delve into consonant-vowel-consonant words (CVC), covering all short vowel sounds while meeting crazy creatures and making crazy words. We literally play with words in this class and have lots of fun. Our focus is on the short vowel sounds which can be difficult to distinguish. We continue to look at rhymes, word families, reading, decoding and spelling strategies. Games are still fun but more complex. Children really start to see themselves as competent and clever readers as their vocabulary and word recognition increases.
