Second Grade Phonics Program: Week 16

This week is a review week for phonics. Students will review the following spelling patterns: ar, er, ir, ou, ow, ee, ea, ai, and ay. There will also be other review patterns in multisyllabic words. Usually, these review slides would be a part of the weekly phonics routine, but this week, we are only reviewing, so there aren’t review worksheets and activities. You can pull activities from previous weeks.

You can get the weekly phonics routine at Teachers Pay Teachers.

One of the most powerful things we can do to help our students learn how to read and write efficiently is intentional repeated practice. Starting your phonics lesson with a review will help students strengthen their neural connections for decoding and encoding.

You can get slides for every phonics pattern at Teachers Pay Teachers and build your own review slides. But if you are following this phonics sequence, we have built the review slides for you. As a reminder, on Monday, we only review phonics patterns from previous weeks because students will not have learned the current pattern yet. Tuesday through Thursday have slides from both the current phonics pattern and review patterns. There are no slides for Friday because this is saved as an assessment day.

If you present these slides to your students, I recommend making the presentations full screen. You can do this by clicking on the three dots on the lower left-hand side and selecting “enter full screen.”





You can print out the word list to tell your students the word each picture represents.
