Phase 4

Children entering phase 4 will know the 44 phonemes, and be able to blend phonemes to read CVC words and segment CVC words for spelling. They will have some experience in reading two-syllable words and captions. They will know letter names and be able to read and spell some tricky words.

The purpose of phase 4 is to consolidate children’s knowledge of graphemes in reading and spelling words containing adjacent consonants and polysyllabic words.
