Each student book focuses on a specific group of advanced phonics or word study skills, enabling students to concentrate on areas requiring the most attention. For each word list, multisensory exercises require students to read, say, and write word parts and words. Students first work with word parts and syllables, then combine syllables into whole words. They use words in context, participate in exercises to increase reading and spelling proficiency, and read list words in short, content-area passages. Because they are all skill based, the books do not need to be used in order.
One-syllable warm up pages preparing students for words encountered within the lesson
Content-area reading passages for each lesson to build comprehension and fluency
Mid-book review list and review activities
Redesigned pages highlighting instructional concepts
Book 5 introduces the vowel sounds of y and some vowel combinations that are common in multisyllabic words. These often confusing vowel patterns are presented clearly and plenty of practice is provided. Exercises include spelling practice, proofreading, crossword puzzles, word finds, fill in the blank, categorizing, sorting, and passage reading for fluency and comprehension.
