Cycle Word List

In this cycle, students work with short “i,” the consonants “k,” “y-“, “z,” “d,” “l,” “f,” and the digraphs “sh,” and “ch” to decode and encode a large quantity of words with two, three and even four (if students are ready) phonemes. While words with short “i” are emphasized, short “a” is reinforced and reviewed. Note that the accumulation of the consonants from this and cycle 2 allows students to start to work with words with initial consonant blends “fl,” “dr,” “gr,” and “sp” and final “–nd,” “-nk,” and “-ng.” In addition, students are introduced to “–s” as a doing suffix. For the full cycle overview with word list, Cycle-at-a-Glance and teaching notes, download the cycle overview. ​
