Fundations Unit 2

Unit Focus Skill:

CVC Words. A CVC word is a word that is made up of a consonant, vowel and consonant sound. Cat, hot, man, tip and hut are all CVC words.

We teach the students to “TAP OUT” each sound to blend the word together. They learned how to tap in kindergarten.

Example CVC Word List:

Unit Trick Words

Trick words cannot be sounded out and can only be learned through repeated practice reading and writing the words until they become memorized.

Ways to practice skill words and trick words at home:

• Write the words on white boards.
• Write the words in sand.
• Spell the words aloud to an adult.
• Build the words with letter tiles or blocks.
• Type the words into an IPad or computer.

Test Date: Friday, September 28th
