Good Story!

By Autumn Mundy — September 09, 2005 1 min read

So I have a really funny story! I was setting up the phonics learning center yesterday and I was making sure that all the parts were there. There is an activity where you match the words with the correct blends, examples being fl-, tr-, oo and ou. I was matching the vowel blends when I came across the word punod. I was at a loss for what this word was and where it went! As I got to looking at it a little more, I noticed that it did not go with any of the vowel blends or consonant blends. So I decided that maybe it was a trick word. I turned the word over and low and behold.... it’s the word pound! Pound fits into the ou vowel blend! I told Mrs. C about it and was laughing so hard the students noticed my face getting red. I thought it was the funniest thing ever and realized that we need to make sure that word is turned the correct way when the students do that center.

This week has been hot but overall good. Lots of stickers and prizes were handed out today! I bought some books through the Scholastic orders the BSU teachers gave us. I read some of the poems out of one of the books. The students seem to enjoy them. They are very good at finding the rhyming words. They also made connections from the cover of the book to another story we read at the beginning of the year. I love to see them actually focused and learning. IT’S GREAT!
