We will talk about what we notice, write it, say it, name the letters, erase(cover), write and check.

Word Family Houses
We are making these cute little word family houses. We are always brainstorming; word chunks at shared reading time from poems and songs.
I made some houses in the fall but didn't include pictures. I do a lot of the chunks over and over again because it benefits everyone.
Some students are just getting the idea oh if I spell cat and take off the c I can spell rat. Some of the students that are reading still need the reminder of looking at chunks in words.
Making the Houses
I used little index cards and cut them in half.
I wrote with a pencil on the back(the lined part). When the student tells me what they plan to draw, it goes on the back.
It helped me so much to write the word on the back of the card so that I could figure out what the picture was.
The chunks here may seem a little random because they are the recent chunk from song charts.
