What sound does this make?
Say it, write it, say it.
These are phrases that first graders are used to hearing in their reading groups. They come each day and whisper read their book from the last group. Then they work on sight words, reviewing old ones and learning new ones for the new book! They also work on practicing common phonics sounds like vowel digraphs, consonant clusters, and others. They also spend time writing words and sounds in their journals.
Lola’s group worked on the ways to write the sound “ow”, both “ou” and “ow”. They also worked on double “oo” and came up with words that fit these groups.
Each group ends with a new book to practice during group and DEAR time! First graders have been diving into each book, happily becoming stronger readers each day.
