Here is a picture of our spiders.
The -ig word family.
The -at word family.
We talked about two word families this week, -ig and -at. I let them pick the word family and the words from the ones that we listed on the board.
If you are wondering how I explain word families, I relate it to their families. I explain that word families end with the same letters and it's like a last name. Just like they have a last name that tells who their family is. Then I explain that the first letters are like a first name and they are different, just like family members have different first names. They seems to understand and recognize word families quickly. They also realize that they rhyme.
Tomorrow is our Halloween Celebration! I love Halloween because of the free candy that
I steal from my child my gives to me. I am the official household candy thief! Oh, I'm sure I'm not the only parent who does this when no one is protecting looking at the candy.
If you are wondering where I got the word family spider craftivity, it came from Susan Moran Jones-TGIF. It's a freebie from her store. Thank you Susan!
What are your plans for Halloween tomorrow? I'm going trick-or-treating with my family.
