gingerbread house

Welcome to Room 109(Week of 12/11/17)


“Run, skip, hop, slide (or many other verbs) as fast as you can!”  We’re having fun with the Gingerbread Man. During the upcoming weeks, the class will continue our comparisons of several versions of the Gingerbread Man.  We will be looking for similarities and differences as well as searching for delicious adjectives and exciting action words (verbs). 


Magic e will make another CVCe appearance this week in combination with the vowel o to make the long o sound (rose, bone, those).  We will also begin to learn that contractions are a short way to combine two words (can + not = can’t, I + am = I’m, I + will = I’ll).  A hungry elf will show us how an apostrophe takes the place of letters that have been dropped in a story about the first contractions.


Spelling Words 

home         hope
rose          woke
those         bone
hose          joke
rode          stone
there            do
