Cycle 4

In this cycle, students work with the short vowel “u” using accumulated phoneme/graphemes from prior cycles with two, three, and even four (if students are ready) phonemes. This cycle introduces the partnering of “u” with “q” (as in /kw/ in “quit” and “quiz”). Short “a” and short “i" are reinforced and reviewed. This cycle allows for students to start to work with words with “-nch.”
