Introduced in This Cycle
Review of syllable types: closed, open, and magic “e” (CVCe)
Cycle Word List
In this cycle, students review the understanding that every syllable in a spoken word contains a vowel sound and that the vowel sound can be “shown” in print by a letter or a particular pattern of letters. Closed, Open, and CVCe syllable types, introduced and worked with in first grade, are reviewed. In addition, they begin to review and practice decoding two-syllable words with those syllable types.
