Our First Grade students have become word builders! The students are focusing on creating words by using a beginning, middle, and end.
The students are using consonants, blends, and digraphs for the beginning sound. They are using vowel teams (ee, ea, ai, oa) for the middle sound, and common endings such as -ing, -er, and -s for the ending sound.
After the students have built a word working with their partners, they practice breaking apart the sounds of the words too!
