LeapReader Book Dora the Explorer: Tale of the Unicorn King
Spelling begins with regular short vowel sounds (cap) and long vowel sounds (with silent e, cap becomes cape). Finally, children learn the rules and patterns of vowel pairs (ee), digraphs (ai in train), dipthongs (oi in boil) and r-controlled vowels (farm, bird)
Sight words are words that cannot be sounded out (the, where, etc.), so they must be learned by sight and memorized.
Readers may use familiar words with similar spellings to help them figure out new words (rake, bake, make).
