Cycle 2

In Modules one and two, kindergarteners work with spoken words and sounds as they learn the primary sound for each consonant and the short sound for each vowel. The following list of words are representative of words that contain the sounds from this cycle in the initial or final position and can be used in spoken form or written form for more advanced readers. The final five words include words with two and three phonemes including phonemes (sounds) and graphemes (letters) from this cycle as well as some from prior cycles. Words such as those can be used with students who are ready to segment individual sounds within spoken and written VC and CVC words. Note that there may be a few words in that final five that include letters and sounds that have not yet been introduced.
