Cycle Word List
In Modules three and four, kindergarteners work on phonemic segmentation and blending and are introduced to decoding and encoding VC and CVC words, as well as words with digraphs. This cycle continues to focus on patterns introduced in prior cycles. The following list provides examples of words containing patterns from this cycle. Students who are ready to segment individual sounds within spoken and written words with four phonemes (with initial or final consonant blends) can use the last ten words in the list (or similar).
