Chapters 11 to 15 - Word Families
Chapters 11 - 15 introduce rhyming words to children. Since word families have a common feature or pattern in the end and they all rhyme, it makes reading them easy for our early readers. They have the same letter combinations which create similar sounds. They are wonderful tools for those new to reading and for learning of spellings.
Chapter 16 and 17 Sound Blends
Apart from vowels, consonants also blend to form sounds. Word blends form an important part in English literacy and they are crucial for development of reading and spellings prowess in a child. Chimple introduces blends in groups like those of h blends, r blends to make it easy for a child to understand before making it more challenging by mixing blending sounds.
