  • Recognizing lowercase and uppercase letters

  • May have a grasp of some sight words as well as ability to sound out simple syllable patterns such as CVC.

Readers at this stage have fully developed an understanding of the alphabet, phonological awareness, and early phonics. Early readers typically recognize a high number of sight words, and continue to work on these skills:

  • Work attack strategies

  • Predicting new words during reading

  • Ability to retell story as well as identify the message of the story
