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 9 focuses on long A vowel teams. It includes primarily /ai/ and /ay/ words. List 9 is composed of a 20-word list, 4 homework assignments, and 4 word work centers.
