    with Closed Syllables, CVC words (hat, pig, lot, cup)

    We have also practiced C-V-C-e Long Vowels and introduced vowel teams for long a - ai and ay, long i - ie, and igh,  long o - oa, and oe, long u - u_e, ue, ui, and ew and long e with e_e, ea, ee, e, and y in a final position:
    long i (in a one syllable word - sky) and long e (in 2 or more syllable words - puppy).
