If you want more practice blending words, here are the words we worked with in the pocket chart this morning.
The new words belong to the "OT" family. Look in your sinks for the word, "HOT" written on the hot water tap. The hardest words are the ones in the second column that share the same beginning and ending sounds, T and N, but have different vowels in the middle.
At the end of the day we had students come in front of their classmates and read a word family into the microphone. Congrats to Dario, Mackie, Aileigh, and Evan for being brave enough to step up.
I know there were others who wished to have the chance to show that they could read these words, too.
