Introduced in This Cycle

r-controlled sounds: /ər/ for “ir,” “ur,” and “er”

High-Frequency Words

“around,” “about,” “over,” “old”

Cycle Word List

In this cycle, students continue to build knowledge of the r-controlled syllable type by introducing “r” to the vowels “e,” “i" and “u,” altering their sound (/ər/).  Students also work with “-er” as a “doer” suffix (example: “fixer” – a person who fixes). The cycle begins with one-syllable words and then moves to two-syllable words by pairing an r-controlled syllable with a closed or open syllable type.
