I’m not only addressing Math Issues but let’s also see if you can discover some mathematical analogies in the following phonological listings. So let’s take a look at some high utility Math word families. Good Luck !!!

Sounds are often stable in the part of the word from the vowel forward, known as the rime. Ninety-five (95)% of the 286 phonograms that appear in primary grade-level texts are consistent. Thirty-seven (37) most common rimes have been identified that form 500 words through the substitution of onsets. These rimes are also known as word families.

  • Most Useful Rimes: The following rimes are useful for children when learning to read and more useful than learning rules and generalizations because the brain formulates ideas in patterns:
