ELA.2.F.1.3

Use knowledge of grade-appropriate phonics and word-analysis skills to decode words.
  1. Decode words with variable vowel teams (e.g., oo, ea, ou) and vowel diphthongs (e.g., oi, oy, ow).
  2. Decode regularly spelled two-syllable words with long and short vowels.
  3. Decode words with open (e.g., hi, baby, moment) and closed (e.g., bag, sunshine, chop) syllables and consonant -le (e.g., purple, circle, stumble).
  4. Decode words with common prefixes and suffixes.
  5. Decode words with silent letter combinations (e.g., knight, comb, island, ghost).

 

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Phonics refers to the relationship between graphemes (letters or letter combinations) and phonemes (speech sounds). 

Clarification 2: Students will decode decodable high frequency words appropriate to the grade level. See 2.F.1.4 and Dolch and Fry word lists. Students will read grade-level appropriate high frequency words, decodable or not, with automaticity.
