Cycle Word List
In Modules one and two, kindergarteners work with spoken words and sounds as they learn the primary sound for each consonant and short vowel.
The first cycle of Module three introduces the sounds /sh/, /th/, and /ch/ and their corresponding graphemes, the digraphs “sh,” “th,” and “ch.” The following list provides examples of spoken words that contain these sounds in the initial or final position. The last five words represent spoken words that include three phonemes taught in this or prior cycles. Students who are ready to segment individual sounds within spoken and written words can use words from this list (or similar).
