Cycle Word List
In Modules three and four, kindergarteners work on phonemic segmentation and blending and are introduced to decoding and encoding VC and CVC words, as well as words with digraphs. This cycle continues to review patterns introduced in prior cycles (short vowels) and introduces the r-controlled vowel sound.
The following list provides examples of words with patterns from this cycle. Note that the last five words include words with initial or final consonant blends). Students who are ready to segment individual sounds within spoken and written words with initial blends and r-controlled vowels can use words from this list (or similar).
