Introduced in This Cycle

Long vowels spelled CVCe: 

    • Decoding CVCe words with suffixes "-s," "-ing," and "-ed" (reading only)
    • Decoding/encoding two-syllable words using the CVCe syllable type combined with other known syllable types

High-Frequency Words

"time," "watch," "ago," "long"

Cycle Word List

In this cycle, students are introduced to the "vowel suffix" rule about dropping the "e" when adding an inflectional ending (suffix) that starts with a vowel ("-ed," "-ing"). Students see that adding "-s" does not require dropping the "e" (as that suffix does not start with a vowel). Instructing students on how to use vowels in two-syllable words to identify the syllable type and decode continues. For the full cycle overview with word list, Cycle-at-a-Glance, and teaching notes, download the cycle overview.
