Word-Level Reading Strategies

Total Word Count: (includes Title) 78
56 different words. 35 are high-frequency words, 38 are decodable and 1 is a non-decodable vocabulary word.

Decodability Criteria: Words in this book are either high-frequency words or are decodable according to the following criteria:
• one letter = one sound (e.g. sun)
• doubled letters = one sound (e.g. wood)
• ck spells the ‘k’ sound at the end of words or root words (e.g. truck, quickly).

Decoding Strategy: As well as practising decoding words using one letter and doubled letter – one sound relationships, students are
introduced to the idea that two different letters can also represent one sound. They meet the ck pattern for the ‘k’ sound at the
end of words (and root words, like quickly). The ck for ‘k’ is coded blue in the text to help students notice it. When students
see this pattern, remind them that it will sound like ‘k’. Students will also meet c and k representing the ‘k’ sound.

Non-decodable Words: High-frequency words:
 a, and, are, at, away, come, dad, do, gets, going, have, I, in, isn’t, more, much, my, not, open, our, put,
quickly, said, some, sun, take, that, the, there’s, to, too, up, we, we’re, we’ll, with
