I have been late posting these! My apologies -- I will get these out on Mondays going forward.
This week we are examining the long "o" sound. We have sorted these words into 1st, 2nd, and oddball. 1st and 2nd refers to the syllable on which the long "o" falls. But within these syllables, students noticed how different rules apply, such as "oa" combinations making the long "o."
