Scope and Sequence
Uppercase and Lowercase Letters
Students are introduced to the lowercase and uppercase letters of the alphabet and their phoneme sounds. In addition, students practice writing the letters and focus on identifying words that begin with these phoneme sounds.
Students are introduced to short vowel phonemes, mainly in CVC words. In addition, students
will learn about building short vowel words, letter sounds at the beginning and ending of
words, and word families.
Consonant Blends and Consonant Digraphs
Students are introduced to initial consonant blends in CCVC words, final consonant blends
in CVCC words, and final consonant digraphs. Students learn how to sound out, blend,
pronounce, and create words with consonant blends.
Students are introduced to long vowel phonemes in silent final e (CVCe) words. In addition,
students will learn about building and pronouncing long vowel words with the silent final e,
and word families using long vowel/silent e combinations.
Long Vowels and Vowel Digraphs
Students are introduced to long vowels and vowel digraphs. Students will learn about
pronouncing and building words with the spelling-sound correspondences for common
vowel team conventions representing long vowel sounds.
Students are introduced to r-controlled vowels. Students learn how to sound out, pronounce,
and identify words with r-controlled vowels in them.
Students are introduced to vowel diphthongs. Students will learn about pronouncing and
identifying words with vowel diphthongs.
Students are introduced to a progressive list of phonemic awareness and skills including
identifying a variety of multisyllabic words. Students will learn about adding affixes to root
words, syllables, secondary sounds for consonant letters, how to build compound words, the
use of apostrophes, and homophones.
