Cycle 20

In this cycle, students continue to build knowledge of the -r controlled syllable type by introducing “r” to the vowels “e,” “i" and “u,” altering their sound (“/er/”). Students also work with “-er” as a “doer” suffix (example: “fixer” – a person who fixes). The cycle begins with one-syllable words and then moves to two by pairing an r-controlled syllable with a closed- or open-syllable type.
