Word Family Building Blocks

This week we are working with the -at word family.

To practice building our -at words, we used mega blocks. I put masking tape on them and wrote at on a double block and the letters b, c, f, h, m, p, r and s on each side of 2 single blocks.

We used our at word family ladder from Confessions of a Homeschooler
to practice writing the words we made with our blocks.

We will be reading this mini book together from The Moffatt Girls every day this week.

I highlighted the sight words he has already learned in yellow and I was so impressed that Captain Rex was able to the read the book almost completely by himself! I am so proud! :)

Our Reading Board.
The materials will change each week based on what we are working on.
