Mrs. Smith's Classroom Spotlight
By Mrs. Smith's First Grade Class
What We Usually Do
Our class is like real school. We have lunch breaks and some people are at daycare or in tree houses. We do writing that is really fun. Also, in reading, we read a lot and it is so much fun. And in math, we study shapes and time but mostly shapes now. During our lunch break usually people eat lunch and play. During phonics, we learn about words and digraphs.

In phonics we learned about vowel teams like "ai" the "a" says "a" and the "i" stays quiet. "EA" like in treat, but the "a" stays quiet, too. A vowel team is when two vowels work together to make one sound. Like rain and boat. Sometimes the vowel team makes the other sound like "ow" says "o" our "ow". "Ay" in play, but the y does not talk, it stays silent. "Oo" makes "o" sound. "Ee" makes the "e" sound. Sometimes the "y" makes an "e" sound. "U" make and "oo" sound like in blue and glue. "Ow" in flower is makes "ow" and in rainbow it makes an "o" sound.
