Long description

Personally, I think this list is flawed in that it only uses short vowels, while also including advanced vocabulary.

I think a child would be able to learn long vowels before she or he learns a word like "bluff" or "tax".

Here are the allowed words used in the decodable texts from free-reading.net. I've made some corrections.
ax (instead of axe)

The table below lists all 942 allowed words:

  • 916 decodable, regular words and
  • 25 irregular words (shown in this font).
