Mrs. Vilela’s Approach to Spelling Patterns:
Students in Mrs. Vilela’s class were busy learning the /oo/ sound spelling in their decodables today. /oo/ can make two different sounds, the sound you hear in “Hurt Foot” and “Oozing Goo“. As you can see in this picture, he is highlighting the word “Good”, one of the many “Hurt Foot” sounds found in this reader. After searching for these sounds in the reader, students will read the story, then answer questions based on the content. They do this independently while Mrs. Vilela works with small groups of students groups of students for specific or targeted instruction.
