Once a student can decode consonant-consonant-vowel-consonant (CCVC) and consonant-vowel-consonant-consonant (CVCC) words composed of the basic code (including high frequency digraphs like <sh, ch, th, ck> and <wh>), it’s time to practice reading them in sentences.
This allows students to work on decoding, word recognition, and reading fluency at the same time.
In this simple resource, we provide students with lots of opportunities to read CCVC and CVCC words in sentences. The sentences are not illustrated, are (deliberately) ‘odd’, and contain commonly misread words to discourage guessing; and encourage left-to-right decoding of each word in its entirety.
This 25-page resource is suitable for face-to-face sessions and distance learning.
