Five Workbooks of word lists and sentences. Great for spelling lists and reading lists. Each targets different vowel sounds - short vowels, long vowel teams, Silent-E, diphthongs, R-Controlled vowels. Within the phonics books words are classified according to different syllable types. There are also lists of root words with prefixes and suffixes.
These phonics, fluency books are easy to use because each one clearly indicates the type of vowel sounds it targets. This set is in line with the Common Core Standards as it focuses on phonics and reading fluency skills. The books are designed for students to do phonics "workouts" by practicing reading the word lists and sentences over and over again and then filling in boxes on the "Workout Chart" to see their progress. Motivation is built in. Teachers/tutors can offer stickers as rewards for doing "workouts". The sentences are first presented in phrases to build reading fluency and comprehension skills and then presented as they would appear in regular text. The phrasing breaks also allow for mental imaging, so important in comprehension. These phonics books are compatible with all traditional, sequential phonics programs and are beneficial for struggling and emergent readers. They also provide phonics practice for all readers in grades 1 - 3. Use as a guide for spelling lists.
