CAFE Mini-Lessons

During CAFE today we reviewed beginning sounds and started learning about ending sounds. We wrote the beginning and ending sound for each picture. Students are currently working on beginning sounds in their writing journals. We will continue to practice both beginning and ending sounds whole group during mini-lessons this week and I will model writing with both sounds in our journals next week.

Our new sight word this week is the word "see". We created our own sentences using this word. One student came up with his own sentence using four of our sight words "I can see a _____." I gave a challenge to the whole class this morning to use their sight word cards from their home folder and create sentences using more than one sight word. Included in the challeng was to see if their parents can do the same thing!
