We have begun working on some essential grammar skills during our word work time each day. This week we will be working to distinguish between a common noun and a proper noun. .
Standard addressed in this weeks word sort focus:
I know the final e and the common vowel teams will make long vowel sounds.
Sort words into categories to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent.
For the next two weeks students will be sorting words into 4 categories. Words with a short a sound, words with long a sounds spelled with a_e, words spelled with a short a, words spelled with long i and short i words .
Test on these words will be on Friday, November 5
Below is the list of words:
short a- last, cram, band, clash
long a spelled with a "magic e"- gate, date, space, place,make and safe
short i- bring, fish, film, and mint
long i spelled with a 'magic e"- nice, wife, side shine, smile, time
This is an example of my student modeling "word sort." (Word Work)
