This month we will be learning about long vowels made by vowel pairs. Each week will be a new vowel pair along with a new picture book. The skills we learn through these books help with comprehension. We have been working on becoming "wise readers" which are readers that read the words and remember the story after. We don't worry about being fast!

Week 1: Hooway for Wodney Wat and ai words like pail, fair...

Week 2: Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink and words with an "ay" like day, pay... 

Week 3: Abe Lincoln's Hat and "ee" words like feet, teeth...

Week 4: Just Going to the Dentist and "ea" words like meat, lean...

Books will also go home a couple times a week to read with your child. Please send these back quickly, even if they do not get read, so that they can be passed on to other children! These books may be ones we read together or books they picked out as "good fits." This means they tried to find something that wasn't too hard or too easy.

Sight Words for the month:

  • Week 1: which, time, other
  • Week 2: would, over, then, their
  • Week 3: many, two, could
  • Week 4: been first, than
