The Alphabetical Principles series continues with “hunks and chunks”. This is part 5. Hunks and chunks are the terms used when referring to letter combinations that make up variant vowels, r-controlled vowels, digraphs and diphthongs. The lessons will continue to follow the same steps as previous lessons in the series. Songs and dances for each hunk and chunk will be taught to help students remember and apply them to their reading. Students will also be taught how to “hunk and chunk”. “Hunking and Chunking” is a decoding strategy. Hunking and Chunking trains the eye to look for letter combinations and their sounds in words. This allows the earner to concentrate on parts of words rather then individual sounds and letters.
