Level 4: Second Semester
More Adventures of the Superkids
This level teaches more difficult phonetic elements, including r-controlled vowels and vowel combinations, such as au, oi, oy, and oo. Children learn strategies for decoding and encoding (spelling) words with variant vowel sounds. Then also continue learning to read and spell new Memory Words (sight words). By the end of this level, students are able to read and spell all 220 sight words on the Dolch Basic Word List. Comprehension and fluency skills are explicitly taught and children practice applying the skills to progressively longer and more challenging decodable stories. Instruction in expressive writing teaches children how to write additional products and use the writing process to plan, draft, revise, and publish.
