• Fourth Level of Reading Competence: *COOL READER*
Page 176 -- Vowel Diphthong Review - Students now read books containing complex multisyllable words, R-modified vowels, long-vowel digraphs, and vowel diphthongs.

• Fifth Level of Reading Competence: *READING WIZARD*
End of book -- Graduation! - Students are now expert readers who can read anything in Phonics Pathways or any other book with ease, fluency, and great enjoyment!

NOTE: while students technically will be able to read anything at this point, they will only comprehend words that are in their current vocabulary and so will tend to choose books reflecting this knowledge.

For example, you and I would be able to read a book on brain surgery, but we would most likely not comprehend it. Therefore, along with teaching the mechanics of reading it is important to continue developing vocabulary levels.
