Cycle Word List

In this cycle, students are introduced to the phonemes /l/, /s/, /f/, and /z/ as represented by the graphemes "-ll," "-ss," "-ff," and "-zz." Students should understand that the short vowel needs an extra letter when these sounds are at the end of a single-syllable word. Direct instruction of consonant blends with "s" as an orthographic unit occurs ("sm," "st," "sp," and "sk"). In addition, "-ed" as /d/ is introduced and included in the Decodable text and offered as an extension in lessons. For the full cycle overview with word list, Cycle-at-a-Glance, and teaching notes, download the cycle overview.
