Our reading focus will be working with the hunk and chunk "ake". We will read books that help identify this hunk and chunk as well as doing many word work activities to help us decode them in both reading and writing. They will be working in small groups with their hot chocolate word parts (beginning letters to match with ending hunk and chunks). Our focus will be "ake" but they will also work with ending: ap, ame, ade, at and ale. On Monday we will work on making words and creating a list. On Tuesday we will add "ake" to our hunk and chunk chants as well as add new words we have created or thought of to our lists. The "ake" words we create will be hung up as well as placed on our word wall. They will also do word searches, sorts, write and circle and other word activities to help us with this chunk. See the homepage of the weebly for a list of what we have already created! This will also bring us into some discussion of compound words (cupcake, pancake)!
Books we will read to help with our focus:
If You Give a Cat a Cupcake
Lucky Pennies and Hot Chocolate
Digger the Dinosaur and the Cake Mistake
Splat the Cat Takes the Cat
If You Give a Pig a Pancake
