Xavier Fox is our Zoophonics animal for the letter X. We could not find many words that start with X, but we could write some with X at the end! Ask your child to spell fox, box, fix, six, ax, and ox - I bet they can do it! Challenge them with the word EXIT. Watch a cool video of a fox pouncing on its prey: is external) And some silly foxes jumping on a trampoline: is external) This man on  Sesame Street had the same problem we did -finding words that start with x: is external)    Don't forget the Storybots!

We were finding some shape names tricky but are getting much better with practice. We can also find shapes when we have clues that describe them. We use words like straight, curved, and points when we talk about the sides and corners.
