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.

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.

As part of our back to school celebration we read the story “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” (our classroom theme for this year) and practiced singing the ABC’s in various different ways.  We sang it the traditional ways as well as the Phonics Song from Have Fun Teaching youtube!

Then we practiced writing the letters in our name, cutting them out and gluing them in order.  Then we also counted how many letters were in our name and made a class graph of who had the most letters in their name and the least amount of letters.
