Vowel Pattern/Blend List

I am new to 2nd grade and trying to figure out which vowel patterns/blends/digraphs I should begin reviewing with my students. Does anybody have a list they would be willing to share that they use throughout the school year?

I always start with reviewing blends, digraphs, short and long vowels. These are usually taught in first grade and should be a review. Then I continue with bossy r or r controlled vowels, dipthongs, soft c/g, silent letters, inflectional endings/plurals, and finally clusters. Mostly this order because of the frequency of usage in the English language. Many kids have trouble with clusters due to the "developmental" inabillity to hear all of the sounds.

Beginning Blends: R blends (cr, tr, gr, br, dr), S Blends (sw, st, sk, sc), and L Blends (fl, gl, pl, cl)
Final Blends: (mp, nd, nk, ng, st, sk)
Digraphs: (ch, sh, th, wh, ph)
Short Vowels and Long Vowels: (Vowel Teams-ai, ay, ee, ea, ey, ie, oa, ow, oe)
(Magic E/-vce)
(Place Value of Y-long i or e sound at the end of a word)
Dipthongs: oo/oo, ou/ow, ew/ue/ui, aw/au
Silent Letters: mb, mn, etc.
Bossy R: ar, er, ir, or, ur
Inflectional endings and various spelling rules (ing, ed) "double the consonant" etc.
Clusters: spr, str, squ, scr
Soft C and Soft G

I have used the following books to help me teach phonics sequentially.

Month-by-Month Phonics for Second Grade: Systematic, Multilevel Instruction for Second Grade by Dorothy Hall and Patricia M. Cunningham (Paperback - Jul 18, 2001)

Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction (4th Edition) by Donald R. Bear, Marcia Invernizzi, Shane R. Templeton, and Francine Johnston (Paperback - May 11, 2007)

Systematic Sequential Phonics They Use by Patricia Cunningham, Joey Bland, and Tracy Soles (Paperback - Sep 30, 2000)

Making Words: Multilevel, Hands-On, Developmentally
Appropriate Spelling and Phonics Activities by Patricia M Cunningham, Dorothy P. Hall, and Tom Heggie (Paperback - Sep 11, 2001)

Attached is a rather thorough list of what I teach. With the exception of the syllables and C: s/c G:g/j and the y sounds, it is a complete list.

I know it looks overwhelming, but you kind of clump things together (all the digraphs) when you teach it.

I hope this helps. I don't remember the source web site.

BTW in theory, the consonants and basic vowel sounds should have been taught in first grade.

for the attached list. I am a third grade teacher, but I am looking to provide some intervention activities for some of my struggling students. The list will be a great reference for me!
