the –ip sound?

will work on the team ou-which also makes the same sound (loud). Please have your child practice reading: crowd, shout, loud, now, sound

/s/ sound before e, i, or y. The letter
c makes the /k/ sound before a, o, u, or any other consonant. (card, cow)

should be: using upper and lower case
letters appropriately, spelling word wall words correctly, sounding out unknown
words phonetically, forming all letters properly/neatly without reversals and
consistently using proper end punctuation and finger spaces.
money is a great way to practice and use skip counting.
your child count different
combinations of coins. For example 3
dimes, 1 nickel and 2 pennies (if you have any!) etc.
them to show you different money
amounts…..Show me 47 cents etc.
can also practice skip counting by having them count different objects…blocks,
noodles, buttons etc. You can group them
with different amounts….show them 2 groups of 10, a group of 5 and 2 loose
you skip count by 2 starting on a number other than 2? Start on 12, for example.
Start on an odd number….skip count by 2 starting on 9.
