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 7 focuses on consonant digraphs and includes ch, sh, th, and wh words. List 7 is composed of a 20-word list, 4 homework assignments, and 4 word work centers. Center 4 is introduced in this unit. It requires students to sort words into categories.
