About This PDF
The ARK program was developed in response to the needs of Aboriginal students experiencing reading problems. The program has been extensively trialled and is now being used successfully with Aboriginal students, remedial reading students, students with English as a second language, students with learning difficulties and adults learning to read or improve their reading skills.
Writing Words gives comprehension coverage of the patterns of written English. It is part of a complete program that progresses from simple 3-letter words through to complex, multi-syllable words. All the pages are fully reproducible giving flexibility by games, stories and student's personal news.
The ARK Writing Words - Book 3 PDF Includes:
- Part 6 - Introduces long vowel sounds. This part shows the student how silent e at the end of words makes the vowel long. The two different sounds for the letter 'y' are covered with the 'ey' and 'ly' ending as well.
- Part 7 - Covers beginning blends with the letters 'l', 'r', 's', and 'w'.
- Part 8 - Covers contractions and introduces compound words.
- Part 9 - Focuses on two vowels together combining to make one sounds eg. 'oa' in boat. This PDF does further work on silent final 'e' eg. nose. The student is made aware that the long vowel sound for each vowel can be made using different letter patterns eg. toe, boat, nose.
