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 18 focuses on r-controlled vowels. All of the words in this list contain the -OR, -OUR, or -ORE pattern. It is composed of a 20-word list, 4 homework assignments, and 5 word work centers.
