Today, students continued their syllable pattern work by looking at the syllable that comes at the end of the word ending with an E. We looked at how that changes the sound of the vowel in that word. For example, the vowel in tap is different than in tape because of the E at the end. We created a chart and looked for examples.
Students also finished their KWL chart about Barack Obama. We also had a chance to talk about what a bill is, and to preview some of what will be coming our way in Unit One which focuses on the Constitution.
Most students are finished with their pre-assessment for reading this year. This was an informal assessment that gives us a chance to look at students academic strengths at the beginning of the school year. If students are not finished, they will be able to continue working in class to complete the assessment. Students did a great job!
