What I found out was amazing! The students in second and third grades do NOT know their number words! No wonder they struggle in math!!! "Three" came out as "there. "One" comes out as "on". And they couldn't even figure out seven and eight! Right now I am working on some activities with to help with number words. I plan to have that pack up by the end of the week, so watch for it!
Also, "her came out as "here". And "were" became "where". Not only does this happen in the assessment, but in their reading as well. So, I added them to the word ring to practice each day and then decided we needed to really work on these words. I created a poem because I just could not find what I wanted! It focuses on the words "her" and "here". (I will probably end up writing poems for some of the other words too.) It is called "A Silly Crow" and was inspired by the Crow With a Bow Graphics from Michelle at The 3AM Teacher. You can grab it here or by clicking the picture below.

Until next time!
