Reading Oral Checks

Single sounds should be sounded out as short as possible (m should be "mm" not "muh" etc). The chart can be read as A, apple, "ah," etc, or just reading the letter sound for more advanced students.

5A sound chart (main focus for 5A 1-110)

Blends should be read as one sound (bl should be "bl" not "b" "l").  Students should be trying to remember the single sound of the blend (What sound does bl together make?). The chart can be read as block, "bl," clock, "cl," or just reading the sound combinations for advanced students.
