Emergent readers are interested in learning how letter sounds work together to build words. We have been learning how letters can work together to make word chunks. Recognizing word chunks help emergent readers quickly and easily read/spell new words. We are learning the "heart word" am and an. Both words are important word chunks found in other words such as c-an, m-an, j-am, h-am. Enjoy decoding new words together when you read by looking for word chunks, like -am and -an. Have your child come to school with new words to add to our am and an word family posters!
