Phonics-

We are learning the sound of short vowel u.  We hear it in words like:  mug, bus, and cut.  Practice finding short vowel u words in the world around you.

Language-

Each letter makes a sound.  Some letters make more than one sound.  Words are made up of letters put together.  Words put together with a finger space between them, make a sentence.

A Noun names a person, place, or thing.  Singular nouns have no s at the end.  Plural nouns have an s at the end.

A complete sentence tells a whole idea.  An example is:  My puppy naps.  An incomplete sentence is missing information.  An example is:  My puppy.

A Naming Part of a sentence tells who or what.  Example:  Two frogs

A Telling Part of a sentence tells what happened.  Example:  jump.

Proper Nouns are special nouns that begin with a capital letter.  Examples are:  Mary, Publix, Beach Boulevard, Blessed Trinity Catholic School.

A Telling Sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a period.  Example:  My cat sleeps with me.

An Asking Sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a question mark.  Example:  When will we go to the park?

A verb is an action word.  It tells what someone or something does.  Examples:  run, jump, and sleep.
