We are also starting to do a lot more writing and the kids have to sound out the words on their own! It is challenging but they are so proud of themselves when they finish! We work on "invented spelling" which means they are not focusing on spelling words correctly. They are just writing the sounds they hear meaning the word "turkey" may be written as "trke" because those are the sounds they hear. This is a very important developmental step so encouragement to spell words on their own is helpful!

New sight words this week: me, here, there, what, was
