They are with Mr. F now.
When they return we will work on phonics in the back and focus on the “shwa” sound. This is when any of the vowels makes a short “u” sound. Example: Label, ahead, money.

I just wanted to send a quick post about the pattern of our spelling words this week. I forgot to send it on Monday! Thanks!
party, star, charm all have the “ar” pattern
lamb, thumb, and crumb all have the “mb” ending. There aren’t too many words in the English language that end with an “mb” but it was part of our phonics this week and these are spelling words that should be memorized for future use.
water, window, world are all part of the “w” family.
