Here’s how the song/poem goes… it’s to the tune of “If you’re happy and you know it…

If you think you know this friend
shout it out!
If you think you know this friend
shout it out!
If you think you know this friend
can you tell me who it is?
If you think you know this friend
shout it out!

The words we focus on, “key words”, are: think, friend, shout, and can.

We find these words in the poem, practice reading them and sounding them out, then break them into important sound chunks: ink, end, out, and an…

Here are the words the children came up with today to go with the chunks…

ink: pink, drink, blink, wink, drinking, thinking, link
end: bend, send, bending, sending
out: pout, mouth
an: pan, man, hand, Leeanne, anchor, Anna, ran, Nana, Hannah

We’ll figure out more tomorrow. I think they did a brilliant job today!
