Cycle Word List

In this cycle, students are introduced to another spelling pattern that can represent a long vowel sound: the vowel team syllable type. They examine the teams "oa" (as long o), "ai" (as long a), and "ea" (as long e). Instruction begins with one-syllable words, then moves to the Syllable Sleuth instructional practice with two-syllable words (example: "raincoat").
