Cycle 18

In this cycle, students are introduced to the “vowel suffix” rule about dropping the “e” when adding an inflectional ending (suffix) that starts with a vowel (“-ed,” “-ing”). Students see that adding “-s” does not require dropping the “e” (as that suffix does not start with a vowel). Instructing students on how to use vowels in two-syllable words to identify the syllable type and decode continues.
