Extra, extra practice!

Some kids just need more practice, especially with irregular vowel combinations.

This set is designed for added training in difficult, irregular vowels sets within the context of a sentence.

Complementing the Vowel Tutor Level 3, and Reading Tutor Packet Level 3 series, it can also be used as a stand alone group of helpful, extra exercises.

It is an effective next step because, while it reinforces the cluster approach to phonics, it also provides practice pages for using context to decode words.

The worksheets are perfect for homework, seat work, or learning centers, and they

improve spelling, too.

Unlike some phonics worksheets, simple word choice enables most students to complete them independently.

The repeated format of consistent clusters encourages natural remembering of these difficult vowel combinations.

Students come to recognize the consistent patterns with few rules. That is the beauty of these worksheets— they help to make word recognition in context more automatic.

10 pages consist of approximately 25 words for each cluster and 10 or more sentences with blanks to be filled in.

12. er + ir + ur
