Students will work on building CVC (consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words with the short e sound. Examples: met, set, let, get. Students will also use prior knowledge of other CVC building skills and short vowels (short u)

Reading Strategy: Students learn different strategies to help with reading:
Eagle Eye-look at the picture to help decode tricky words
Lips the Fish-get your mouth ready to sound out words
Stretchy Snake- Stretch the words out to make it easier to sound out
Chunky Monkey-Look for word chunks to make sounding words out easier
This week's strategy is Skippy Frog-
Students will skip a tricky word and come back to it. Using the words from the rest of the sentences will help them figure out the unknown word!
UNIT 4-EXPLORING FAMILIES AND TRADITIONS
We will also be focusing on the differences between non fiction and fiction text.
Through Narrative writing, students will write about an event in their lives. We are still working on finger spaces between each word and a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence. Don't forget the period!! :)
