Phonics

Hi 2-113 Parents and Students!
Here are some concepts that could be strengthened across the classroom:
Vowel Teams/Digraphs/Blends/r-controlled syllables.
 You can help support this by working on them with your child at home, too.  
Have them point out words in their reading that match the different patterns; discuss.
These are important vocabulary and spelling words as well as being words to learn phonics.
