We have now completed all the letter sounds. Homework will now be spelling/word making which will be given home on a Monday and should be completed by Friday. Instructions are in the homework books.

Word pot words have been taken out so the word making cards can be kept in the word pots. You may also want to use the word pot for the letter sound cards for the week.
