Long Vowel Patterns
Advanced Vowel Patterns
We suggest that before reading one of the assessments books you do a word decoding assessment.
Once you have determined the student’s highest level of isolated decoding, you can ask them to read the corresponding assessment text. For example, read Fox and the Wet Rug with students who can already decode CVC words in isolation. This assessment is only useful if the child has the underlying phonics knowledge.
We assume that you are using a variety of phonics curricula which may have small differences in scope and sequence. The high frequency words used match the Daffodil Hill Press scope and sequence and are underlined on the recording sheet. You’ll want to note words the child needs to learn, while also considering which words you have already taught.
