This kit includes fifty-six weekly spelling and phonics lessons ranging from short, long, -r controlled, and diphthong vowels (Within Word Pattern) to complex two-syllable words (Syllable Juncture) for first through third grade levels. These five-day lessons begin with teacher-directed activities, then slowly-release students to practice their new spelling and decoding concepts utilizing independent seatwork, homework, and centers.
In this program, students “visit” four different Vowel Towns where unique characters use their vowel patterns to make words in Word Family Houses and Wiggle-Jiggle Word Factories. Short stories, charts, and chants introduce the characters, and then key words are posted on the different Vowel Towns’ phonics bulletin boards to use as reference tools. After learning all the vowel patterns for single syllable words, the lessons then move to the next level of spelling, two-syllable words that include compound words, open and closed syllables, two-syllable words with le endings (i.e., middle), and two-syllable words with y endings (i.e., happy). In this section, kid-friendly stories and charts are also used to introduce all the different types of two-syllable words. Additionally, prefixes and suffixes, contractions and possessives, and homophones, as well as parts of speech are added bonus lessons to complete this binder.
