Hello First Grade Parents,
This week in 1st Grade:
Reading: "My Happy Rainy Day" and "In Case of Rain" We are learning that the letter y is sometimes a vowel...Our rules for this week---If a word ends in a y and it is the only vowel, the y will make the long i sound...for example- my, why---if a word ends in a y and their are at least 2 vowels in the word with other letters in between the vowels the y will make the long e sound...for example-happy, rainy, dizzy...I showed the students how day and play have two vowels, but there isn't a letter between the vowels so the y is silent and we pronounce the long a sound.
Spelling- by, fly, cry, try, belly, jelly, smelly, bunny, funny, sunny
