Short Week and a FREEBIE!

It was a short week at school due to Hurricane Isaac but we did manage to enjoy FROGGY FUN DAY.  Here's a peek of some froggy fun.

You can find this frog face pattern at Making Learning Fun.
Our froggy fun ended with the eating of these cute froggy cupcakes and drinking bug juice while watching this frog video created by a former school student.

 The students are learning a reading strategy - singing sounds!
Here's how it works:
Start with  c - sing /c/.

Add a - sing /ca/.
Add t - sing /cat/.  What do you hear? Cat!
 Here's a freebie to get you started.  There are 5 CVC build and sing cards.  There are 5 simple sentences, too.  After the students practice singing the sounds, they can practice reading the words in these 5 sentences.  (Graphics by KPM Doodles.)
