all about spelling "a" sounds


Recommended Posts

I just started looking through All About Spelling and for "a" sounds it doesn't list a short "u" sound, at least not in the beginning. Do they introduce it later on? I scanned through the book and didn't find it but I might have missed it.  I have an Anna and an Emma so we need to know! 🙂 Thanks!

I know they do, but I think it's in a higher level, like Level 3 or 4? After they start introducing rules for stressed and unstressed syllables, they explain that the "ah" sound gets pronounced "uh" in some unstressed syllables. This is several years ago for me now...

...Went and found it in the Scope and Sequence. It's in lesson 20 of Level 4. "Spell words containing unaccented a"
