Two Vowels Go Walking


I am so impressed with the progress students are making during the "word study" portion of our literacy block. Thanks so much for your continued support at home as well. Please remember to be sure your child can say the word independently before they practice the spelling. Giving students an extended opportunity to rehearse the spellings of their individual word lists has allowed more students to be successful so we will continue rehearsing these spellings for a two week period.

Now that we have become experts with the magic, silent e we are going to move on to a new long vowel, phonetic concept, and have a chant that we sing to help us remember, thanks to the Electric Company.

Don't be surprised if you find yourself singing this afterwards. It is a catchy tune!
