Hi. My 9yodd is going thru Barton (just finishing level 4, yay!!!) and she has a hard time spelling/sounding vowel-L. Like "sail". She'll say "SAY-UHL", and gets all confused. Or, the syllable "pro" (today was "proclaim"), she'll get confused about the R sound and think it's ER, so today she wanted to write PERO. I reminded her it's only one syllable. I guess that would work for "sail" too. 

 

Anyone have any handy tips for these?? She's pretty weak in phonemic awareness, we're definitely working on that.
