Code - Set 17

Activities:

Let’s learn to recognize and spell words with the letter combinations: -all, -ack, -ill, -ash, -ick and -ump.

  • Number these letter combinations from 1-6 on a sheet of paper: 1) -all, 2) -ack, 3) -ill, 4) -ash, 5) -ick, 6) -ump. Take turns rolling a die and see if you can come up with a word that ends with the letters next to the number rolled. For example, if you roll a “5,” you’d have to come up with a word that ends with -ick, like tick. Take turns until one of you can’t come up with a new word for a given ending.

Let’s learn to recognize and spell these sight words: beautiful, been, enough, first, many, once, these, which, won't, work.

  • From a book your child is reading, choose words for him or her to try and spell. He or she can write them down on a piece of paper or spell them out loud.

Let’s learn to read correctly at least 70 words per minute in a text with good expression.

  • Encourage your child to read short stories that do not have any pictures. Ask him or her to draw a picture for the story and write a few sentences about this picture.
