     Our Week at a Glance
      
    Reading:
    This week in Reading, we are starting Module 7:  The Big Outdoors.  It is week 1.
     
    This week in Phonics we will introduce long o vowel teams oa (boat, float) (at the beginning and middle of words) and ow (glow, snow) (at the end of words). 
     
    To date, we have learned short a, e, i, o, and u along with qu and ck.  We also introduced double final consonants. 
    We practiced digraphs:  ch sh, th (both sounds), and wh.  We are learning about s, l and r blends and final blends.  We are also learning about long vowels and vowel sounds of y (/i/ and /e/).  We have also been introduced to a_e, i_e, o_e, and u_e with soft c /s/ an d soft g /j/.  Vowel teams are next.  We have learned ai and ay.

    Each week the students will be tested on five hfw words and five focus sound words.
