HOMEWORK FOR THE WEEK OF October 16th – 20th 2017
Fundations: Consonant Digraphs
First grade will continue with Unit 3 in Fundations. This unit focus’ on consonant digraphs which is two consonants together that make one sound such as “s” and “h” together make the sound /sh/. Because a consonant digraph makes only one sound, they only get one tap. For example, the word “sh o p” has three taps even though there are four letters because there are only three sounds to the word. We will be introducing verbs and adjectives to the students and we encourage you to have your child use them when adding details to their homework sentences.

1. Dictate (say) the word and have your child echo the word.
