Phonetic Words And Stories, Book 3
In this book, the vowels are color-coded. Each vowel sound is printed in a particular color. This helps students notice the vowels in words. The color-coding also helps students become aware that different vowel patterns can represent the same sound, and in some cases, one vowel pattern can represent more than one sound.
Book 3 teaches long o and long u patterns, along with umbrella vowels o_e/love,a_/across and _a/panda. Students practice short and long vowel discrimination with words like pin/pine and mad/made.
Students play the "robot game" as they study pages with new phonetic words and pictures. The game helps students analyze the sounds in each word so that it will be easier to read it.
After learning several new sets of words, students read a short practice story to apply their new knowledge.
