    Green: previously taught      Red: currently studying     Black: upcoming word study

    Unit 2- I can use letter sounds I know to build words I can spell and read!

    Name Recognition: We begin our word work by first studying our names! Your will begin to recognize their names, identify the letters in their name, as well as sort letters that are and are not in their name. This is the beginning of letters/sounds introduction, and will create awareness that letters are all around us!

    Letters & Sounds: We are exploring our letters/letter sounds to sound out and make cvc(cat, hop, pig) words! Please review letters/sounds with your child at home.  For vowels, we state the long and short sound that they make.  To continue or word study now that we have mastered our letters and sounds, we are beginning to introduce word families, digraphs, and blends! Recognizing and being able to sound out words with these patterns/sounds will help your child to become an even better reader and writer! We remind our students to stretch out the word and say it in slow-motion and to stretch it out like a rubber band to hear all of the sounds! 

    Previously Taught Letters: All letters!
    Blend/Digraphs: sh, ch, th, bl
    Word Families: -at, -ig

    This Week's Letter Studies: Review previously taught letters, sounds, and word families!

    Upcoming Studies: -ing, -op

    Sight Words: Sight words are essential to reading.  Sight words are the high-frequency words that occur most often in books.  They often cannot be sounded out, and knowing these words in a snap helps build a reader's confidence and love for reading.  I will send home flash cards that your child is practicing every friday for you to continue practice at home.  Please send in the flash cards on Wednesday for them to be updated regularly! Sight words are learned on an individual basis based on readiness, and your child may have different words than are taught as a group in class! We are trying to build strong, confident readers, and we would like to minimize frustration as that could create negative feelings towards reading now and in the future!
