Mrs. Codding's Class

Jolly Phonics

This week we have worked on the sounds oa, ir, ee, or &j. Please use these cards to practice sounds every night! It only takes a few minutes, but makes a HUGE difference! We continued to work on stretching our words and writing down the sounds they hear on their papers this week. If I have done this with them, I will usually write "With Teacher Help on the paper". If that comment is not on the paper, your student is trying to do it on their own! Yippee! THey have an updated sound page to sign and more sound cards to cut out and practice with. If they are doing really well with know the sound cards, switch to writing. Ask the to write the letter that says "B". Or ask them to find the card that the word "pig" starts with and listen for sounds that way.

We have also begun to introduce "Words of the Day"! These are the words you child will need to be able to recognize and read. Our words so far are:










I will make flashcards and send them home next week for you to review at home.


We completed Unit 2 and took our test this week. I sent it home on Thursday. The kids did pretty well on it! We need a little more practice with 1 more, 2 more, 1 fewer and 2 fewer. An easy way to practice is to work with your kiddos to line up objects (cheerios, marshmallows, froot lops, toys, pencils, coins) at home in two rows. you make a row and then ask them to have their row show 1 more, two more, 1 fewer or 2 fewer than yours.

Picture Day

Picture Day is Wednesday Sept 30. Everyone will get pictures done for the yearbook. If you want to order pictures, the form and payment must be here at school before we take pictures. Our picture time is 8:50 AM

Chalk Sounds

We took our learning outside on Review Day. Mrs. Codding wrote each sound in a sidewalk square and the kiddos either drew a picture or wrote a word in each square that started with that sound!
