This week we’ve been learning about the letter i and vowel sounds in words. We started off by learning the song by Raffi Apples and Bananas. For those that aren’t familiar with that song, it takes the words “I like to eat, eat, eat, Apples and Bananas” and changes them based on each long vowel sound.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKEUAzzn-Ig]
Then after we’ve practiced the new letter i, we worked on building words with short /i/ vowel sounds with magnetic letters and writing them on dry erase boards.
Later on this week we then worked on word short /i/ word families such as -ip and ig and we did a sorting activity sorting pictures into groups of short /i/ words and not short /i/ words.
