Flippy Dolphin teaches young readers how to flip the vowel sound if the short vowel sound does not help them decode the word accurately. Readers are able to answer the questions Does it sound right? and Does it make sense?
If the word does not make sense or sound right, the reader can flip the vowel sound saying that vowel's long sound.
