Key Concepts in Unit 2
glued sounds- -all, -am, -an, -ang, -ing, -ong, -ung, -ank, -ink, -onk, and -unk
bonus letters- After a short vowel, letters f, l, and s get a BONUS or EXTRA LETTER (ff, ll, ss). This happens in one-syllable words like brass, puff, and spill.
vowel teams- students should recognize the following vowel teams in words and the sounds they make. We will not focus on the spelling rules for these combinations until a later unit. EX. play, bait, jeep, eat, key.
