Code - Set 8

Activities:

Let’s learn to use a period, an exclamation mark or a question mark at the end of a sentence.

  • When reading to your child, exaggerate your voice when reading sentences with exclamation marks. Ask him or her to repeat after you. Talk about how the exclamation mark changes a sentence to make it more exciting. Do the same for question marks. Talk about how the question mark changes a sentence to ask about something.

Let’s learn to sound out and spell words with the letter combinations: sh, aw and au.

  • Go on a letter pair hunt. See how many words you can find or come up with using the above letter combinations and keep track of them in a visible place like a bedroom door or fridge

Let’s learn to recognize and spell these sight words: big, come, do, here, my, not, one, said, up, we.

  • Play a spelling game with the sight words your child is learning. Ask him or her to spell the word as you say it, or spell the word yourself and ask him or her what word it is.

Can your child consistently:

  • Use a period, an exclamation mark or a question mark at the end of a sentence.
  • Sound out and spell words with the letter combinations: sh, aw and au.
  • Recognize and spell these sight words: big, come, do, here, my, not, one, said, up, we.
