We have been working hard on sorting words according to their word family. Every Monday, the kids get a word sort that is a "good-fit" for them. They cut out the words and sort them according to the word patterns they have. The students practice reading and sorting their words every day and on Fridays they glue them down and we check their progress.
We have also been working on writing personal narratives or small moments about our lives. We learned how to add transition words to put our story in order and make it more interesting.
