Blackboard With Letters.png
Phonics: 
The letter of the week is Mm. Mm is for monkey. 

Current Letters the kids should know:  Ll, Oo,Gg, Hh, Tt, Pp, Aa, Nn, Mm.


We are working on coding our words with the Phonics rule we learned last week.  
We search a word for the vowel and if it is followed with a consonant, then we mark the vowel with a Breve.  The Breve makes the vowel short. 

We learned about compound words also this week.  Two words that come together to make a brand new word.  
Ex: Pan/cake = pancake
Ex: base/ball=baseball

Topics we are covering:
 *Vowels (A,E,I,O,U) and consonants
 *Rhyming words (words that sound the same at the end)
       
  Ex: Top, Pop
       Ex: Tall, fall 
*Sounds make up words, words make up sentences.  We practiced counting how many words were in sentences.  
       Ex: I see the ball.  (4 words)
       Ex: The bear is brown and big. (6 words)
