This week in grade 2 we are focusing on the sound "a"!
We read our silly "a" story today for the first time. Then we brainstormed "a" words that we already knew. At the end of the week they will make up their OWN silly "a" story.
I made up some word wall cards and started a sound word wall. I normally group my word wall by first letter, but figured I'd try something new this year and group by sound.
Later this week we will hunt the room for "a" sounds. We will also try to make up different sentences using our "a" words. I made up a centre for matching (the picture to the word) and some file folders filled with "a" pictures, so students can write each word in letter tiles.
Hope you all had a great Monday!
