Vowels

Oh, those vowels. They are so tricky and hard to get a handle on when you are first learning about words. During our work work time, we have been learning about how there are many ways to spell the long vowels sounds. We have worked with the silent e, vowel pairs (when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking) and other spelling patterns. We will continue to work on these topics for a while longer. The photo below shows some of the work we have done with vowels. (Remember, you can click on a photo to see a large version.)


If you would like to hear a student's perspective on this vowel work, then take a look at Chloe's ShowMe below:





More Series Books
The latest book series that we are exploring are Fluffy the Guinea Pig and Mercy Watson (a regular pig). Both series are very funny and the crew is already enjoying them. Check out the photos below. There are many books in both series so be sure to check some out on your next trip to the library.
