Cycle 11

In this cycle, students are introduced to the spelling patterns (graphemes) “oo,” “ou,” “ui,” “ue,” and “ew” for the similar sounding phonemes /ū/ and /ōō/ (decoding only). In addition, they are introduced to contractions with the word “will” (examples: “it’ll”, “they’ll”, “we’ll”) and continue to review and practice using their knowledge of known syllable types to decode two-syllable words.
