Reading Week of 2/22/17

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful break. I certainly did, but it was nice to be back today with the students!

Here is our focus for the week: 

-ng

ang - fang - /ang/

ing - ring - /ing/ 

ong - song - /ong/

ung - lung - /ung/

The students were introduced to these "welded sounds" today. We talked about how when these letters come together at the end of word they will always make the same sound. They are closed syllables but do not all have short vowel sounds. 

The students have a new story, "Tang," in their folders to practice these new sounds. As you will notice, the students went on a "hunt" in class today to highlight all the -ng words in yellow. 

I am looking forward to this short week!
