Focus: Consonant blends - 4-letter words - Short vowel sounds - Decoding words - Medial sounds
Necessary Prior Knowledge: A good bank of sight words - Sounding out skills
This program introduces consonant blends and four letter words. Children get to cook with letters and meet characters that love to blend. Children now have a good bank of sight words and their skills for decoding words and sounding out simple words is well developed. This program looks at chunking or segmenting words into smaller bites, looking for patterns and more spelling strategies. We integrate more punctuation marks and look at developing expression when reading aloud.
