We have been working on beginning and ending sounds for a few weeks now. Today, we talked about how knowing the beginning sounds of words helps when we are reading. If we know the beginning sound a word makes we can sometimes match the word to a picture. If the picture and beginning letter sound match, then chances are the word is correct too! We practiced the beginning and ending sounds strategy today by looking at four different pictures and writing the beginning and ending sound we hear with the word. We will match words to pictures later in the week for a review of this CAFE strategy.
