This task requires students to read words ending in -y or -ey when the words also have consonant blends. Students are not asked to identify the letter/letter combination or its sound before reading the word.
This is the first task in which students write whole words.
Students will write each word once, and they should copy it by looking at the word on the screen.
The act of writing these words ensures that students pay close attention to the form of each word, which will help the students recognize and read them with increasing ease.
From now on, both the Irregulars task and the Review task will require students to write. There will no longer be a separate Writing task at the end of each cycle.
