Cycle Word List

In this cycle, students are introduced to the phonemes /w/ and /k/ as represented by the graphemes “wh-,” and “-ck.”  This cycle also starts a significant push towards automaticity with decoding and encoding single-syllable words with four (and more) phonemes.  In effect, student decoding of single-syllable short vowel words shifts to words with consonant blends.  Students are introduced to the suffix "-ed" (pronounced /t/) to denote past tense (ex: “ducked,” “fixed,” “kicked,” “locked,” “jumped,” etc.). For the full cycle overview with word list, Cycle-at-a-Glance, and teaching notes, download the cycle overview.
