This program was designed to improve young students' spelling and decoding skills through engaging, hands-on activities. I have been testing and revising these activities with my own second graders over the past ten years. Each 2-week unit addresses a different pattern such as digraphs, consonant blends, and r-controlled vowels.
List 12 focuses on letter combinations that make a long O sound, such as /oa/ and /ow/. List 12 is composed of a 20-word list, 4 homework assignments, and 5 word work centers.
