These booklets introduce the most common phonogram patterns, such as sh/ship and ee/feet. Students learn these patterns and practice them while reading words, sentences, and stories. Students are also being introduced to many of the most common beginning sight words, including me, he, we, give, live, have, to, do, who, etc. These booklets are ideal for students who need extra practice with decoding and sight word recognition. The print is large, because some primary aged children aren't ready to focus on small print. Arrows separate the sounds in the words, to help students recognize and pronounce each letter and phonogram pattern. The arrows also reinforce decoding from left to right.
The phonics sequence doesn't match Reading Street, but many of the same patterns are included, in a different order. I use these booklets in addition to the Reading Street program.
I've finished a new set of phonogram pattern booklets. I've changed the order of some of the phonograms to create a more logical sequence. I've added some new stories to fit the modified sequence, and put all the stories in a separate set of three Practice Story booklets. There is also a booklet of color-coded word lists with the phonograms presented in the same order for review. These short lists contain the most common words in our language. A set of spelling workbooks and a set of tests also match the new sequence.

These require a lot of paper, because there are fewer words on each page.
Be sure to download the practice stories that go with these phonogram booklets; they are shown above on the left.
The above booklets do not have sound charts or the sound story in them. Download this Practice Charts booklet to supplement the February 2010 Phonogram Pattern Booklets. Instructions are included.
Practice Charts For Phonogram Pattern Booklets - Coming Soon
The sight word cards included in this file will be slightly different from those in the 2010 phonogram booklets, and some will be in a different order. You will need to select the cards you need and sort them into the correct order. This file will make three sets of cards.
