We have met almost all of our Zoophonics animals! We talked about Yancy Yak and her sound today. We practiced reading and writing some popular words that start with /y/ too - the words yes and you that are on our word wall. Many children are excited to spell the color words now too - yellow starts with y.  Check out this Yakety Yak Sesame Street video: is external) And why do we love Y? is external) The children will meet Cliff Hanger from the PBS show Between The Lions. Can your child yodel? is external) Parents may enjoy Nora Jones singing about the letter y - is external) We noticed that y is not a letter that plays fair - you may want to look at the post about Grade 1 learning that y is sometimes a vowel.

While kindergarten is learning the consonant sound for the letter y,  Grade 1 will look at when the letter y sounds like i or e. Check out these videos: is external)

Y is saying i: is external)

Y is saying e: is external)

Grade 1 is learning their doubles facts in math class. We have a few tricks to help us - for example 9+9=18 is our 18 wheeler fact and 6+6=12 is our dozen of eggs fact. Can your child tell you the rest? Here are some links to some games that make practice fun:
