    Welcome to December! 
    This week in our Reading Street program, we are reading Ruby in Her Own Time
    We are reviewing all of our long vowel sounds - vowel-consonant-e and vowel teams.
    So far we have been practicing
    Beginning and Final Consonant Blends (clap, frog, desk, list),
    with Closed Syllables, CVC words (hat, pig, lot, cup)
    Digraphs (ch, ph, sh, th, wh), and trigraphs (thr, str, squ).
    We have also practiced C-V-C-e Long Vowels and introduced vowel teams for long a - ai and ay, long i - ie, and igh,  long o - oa, and oe, long u - u_e, ue, ui, and ew and long e with e_e, ea, ee, and e.  
    Y in a final position:
    long i (in a one syllable word - sky) and long e (in 2 or more syllable words - puppy). 
    In Math we are continuing Module 2 - Introduction to Place Value Through
    Adding and Subtracting within 20.
