Cycle 5

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 lists 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. Note that words such “glass” and “love” have the final /s/ and /v/ sounds spelled ‘ss’ and ‘ve’ respectively. Because these are spoken, not written, such words can be used to support students in identifying the position of the /s/ or /v/ sound.
