Teaching Notes
1. Students should be able to recognize and give the sounds for the
letters of the alphabet.
2. Materials listed below are available at www.soundcityreading.com.
3. Read the Sound Story Part 1 to the students. This story has pictures
to illustrate the letter sounds in our language. For example, a
growling dog shows the sound for the letter r, and a hissing snake
shows the sound for the letter s. It includes all of the short vowel
sounds (a/ant, e/egg, i/in, o/ox, u/up) and the long i sound, i/
island.
4. Use the Sound Picture Flashcards for Part 1 of the Sound Story to
review the sounds they represent. These cards have a sound pic-
ture on one side and the letter that represents that sound on the
other side. Show each card and have students give the sound in
unison. Or call on individual students to give each sound, followed
by the whole class. Practice giving the sounds for both the picture
side and the letter side. If a student forgets the sound for a letter,
turn the card over to show the sound picture to help the student re-
member the sound.
5. In this booklet, students will read words and sentences with each
short vowel sound. The vowel being studied is shown at the top of
the page along with the related sound picture and a key word be-
ginning with that sound. Have students identify this vowel sound
before reading each page.
6. Students will practice decoding (sounding out) new words in two
columns. In the left column, the words are segmented, or sepa-
rated, to show the separate sound units within the word. To read
the words, students should put a finger under the first letter, say
the sound, slide their fingers to the next letter, say the sound, slide
to the next letter, and say the sound. Each sound is to be said dis-
tinctly and separately. This is called segmenting the word. The ar-
5

rows show the direction to move as the word is read. Then stu-
dents should slide their finger to the same word in the right
hand column, and say the word in the regular way, without
separating the sounds.
7. Students will read the same words again on the next page. This
time the words have pictures to show their meanings. Discuss
the meanings of any unfamiliar words. It’s important for stu-
dents to realize that if they recognize the word, they should just
say it in the regular way. It’s OK to sound out words (say the
sounds from left to right) that they don’t remember. But once
they learn a word, it’s not necessary to sound it out any more. If
they do need to say the sounds to figure out the word, they
should repeat it normally after they recognize a word.
8. After reading all the words for each short vowel section, stu-
dents will read sentences containing some of those words. The
sentence pages contain only the new words and any other
words that have been previously taught. It is not necessary for
students to guess. If they have trouble with a word, remind
them of the sound of the letter that is causing a problem, as they
say the sounds from left to right. Remind them to think about
the other words in the sentence and anticipate what words
would make sense.
9. Explain the use of suffixes and punctuation as needed.
10. An umbrella over a vowel is a signal to use the u/umbrella
sound for that vowel.
11. After finishing this booklet, students should be able to read all
of the sight words on the last page.
12. Each set of short vowel words is divided into three groups. The
first group of words is the easiest to read for beginners. The last
group is the hardest.
6

Short Vowel Words
13. The first group of words uses only continuous consonants.
When you pronounce a continuous consonant, it is possible to
hold the sound for a period of time. This makes it much easier
for a student to connect the first consonant sound in the word to
the vowel sound that comes after it. I use these consonants in
the first group: f, h, l, m, n, qu, r, s, v, w, x, y, and z. (When you
pronounce the consonants qu and x, you can actually hear two
parts to the sound. The letter qu sounds like /kw/, and the let-
ter x sounds like /ks/. I include these letters in the continuous
consonants since the second part of the sound can be held.)
14. The second group of words uses continuous consonants at the
beginning of the word, and stopped consonants at the end.
Stopped consonants cannot be held. The sound disappears after
you pronounce it. I use these stopped consonants: b, c, d, g, j, k,
p, and t. The words in this group are also easy to read, because
they begin with a continuous consonant. It isn’t hard to put the
stopped consonant sound at the end of a word.
15. The third group of words begins with stopped consonants.
These words are the hardest for beginners to read because it is
more difficult to connect the sound of the first consonant and the
following vowel smoothly.
16. In this booklet, I’ve consciously avoided using series of rhyming
words. Although using rhyming words can help children learn
to recognize a set of words quickly, some children tend to use
this as a crutch. They get into the habit of looking only at the
first two letters and ignoring the last letter. Instead of reading
each sound to the end of the word, they try to rhyme the word
with a word that was previously read.
17. Beginning readers master these beginning decoding skills at dif-
ferent rates. It is important for students to take ownership over
the need to practice reading and rereading the material until it
can be read smoothly, with good expression. Many students
have difficulty getting started, but go on to master the material
very well.
