They will move onto the next list once they complete their current list.  The kids will not all be on the same list, but please make sure you are going through these words NIGHTLY with your child.  The kids will be successful readers the more sight words they know. :)

Phonics: 
 

Current Letters the kids should know:  Ll, Oo,Gg, Hh, Tt, Pp, Aa, Nn, Mm, Ii, Ss, Ff, Rr


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)
