Reading Longer Phonetic Words (Blue Level)


After a child has been successfully reading three letter phonetic words and building four or more letter phonetic words using the large movable alphabet, she is ready to begin reading these longer phonetic words.


The same format of materials previously used in the Beginning Reading sequence is repeated. Now, for the four or more letter phonetic words, the materials are color-coded blue. The large array of materials are intended to give the children lots of practice reading phonetic words. The material is presented in different formats in order to keep the children's interest and help them feel that they are progressing. After children have been working with a given material for awhile, new material is brought into the room to keep interest alive.
