The exercises in Explode The Code Book 3 begin with words that present y as a vowel, then progress to long vowels with silent-e, and finally to consonant and vowel digraphs. Students practice blending sounds to read and write one-syllable words that include digraphs and long vowel sounds. In addition, several review lessons are included.
• y as a vowel
• Consonant digraphs (sh, th, wh, ch, -tch, -ng, -ck)
• Vowel digraphs (ee, ea, ai, ay, oa, ow)
For grades 1 through 3.
