    This week's words are words spelled with endings -er and -est, such as wetter, calmer, and silliest.    


Language -      For grammar we are learning about comparative and superlative forms.   During writing we are learning about the structure of a paragraph.  We are researching and taking notes for animal reports.  We are also writing a short 'Love Is' piece for Valentine's Day.

 ** Tip ** 

 Phonics / Spelling 

When trying to spell a word you don't know, try 'tapping out' the sounds.  Now 
match the letters to the number of sounds.  Practices recognizing spelling patterns which may include blends, digraphs, r-controlled vowels, or dipthongs.  This also works on separating each sound that should be heard separately so you don't jump over a letter when writing it down.

For example:    sip  -  3 sounds (_ _ _) &  3 letters - s-i-p  
However......        ship  -  also 3 sounds (_ _ _)   But... 4 letters sh-i-p
car  -  2 sounds (_ _)  But 3 letters  c-ar
