This week in Reading our focus has been differentiating between short /oo/ (book) and long /oo/ (moon). This has been a hard concept, so please be sure your children are reading the nightly passages and please help them to identify the two sounds. This week's nightly passage is a hard passage to read. However, even today, after only having a couple of times to read, I have already seen an improvement in their fluency speed and word accuracy:)
Next week we will finish vowel teams, ending with ow says /ou/ sound and -igh. After vowel teams, we will start our last syllable type, R controlled:)
Please continue have them study nightly both Learned "red" Words and Vowel Team (VT) cards. And, of course, please continue to have them read nightly.
