This week we continued working on segmenting words. Kindergarten took on their second group of sounds including – c, k, e, h, r, m, and d. We combined these with previously learned sounds to create short words such as cat.
Meanwhile Grade one focused on the phonograms: Qu, ee, ck, and reviewed previously learned sounds to create new words. Including Queen, Quilt, Quit, and Quick.
Grade 2 practiced blending sounds together and identifying words. This week we conducted several classroom treasure hunts, and also played some charades with single syllable words. Mainly identifying animals and classroom objects.
Grades 3,4, and 5 continued blending sounds as well, but also started to focus on different parts of speech such as nouns and adjectives. We played a variety of games to build our vocabularies, differentiated between singular and plural nouns, and learned how we can modify nouns to add more detail.
