Module 1 Skills Block

By the end of Module 1, students should be reacquainted with many of the long vowel patterns and most syllable types (closed, open, CVCe, vowel team, and r-controlled) taught in Grade 1. Students should be able to decode and encode one- and two-syllable words that contain these patterns and syllable types, along with inflectional endings (“-s,” “-ed,” “-es,” and “-ing”). Students should be able to recognize, spell, and read various high-frequency words (regularly and irregularly spelled) taught in Grade 1 as well as some newly introduced high-frequency words. Finally, as a result of a sharpened focus on fluency, students become more aware of the elements of fluency as they read aloud, including rate, phrasing, and expression.
