    Default 2nd grade phonics guide correction

    In the 2nd grade Phonics Guide for Reading & Spelling on week 2, page 28 of the Tuesday phonics for spelling question #9 says "which words keep the silent e rule?" The answer lists ice, case, faces, age, places. I believe cage should be included as part of the answer.

    Thanks!

    Heidi,

    You are correct. I don't know how that was missed.

    I was proud of my 2nd grader for catching it! No worries! You're human like the rest of us and entitled to a mistake once a year!

    Heidi,

    Give that student a "Thank you" and "Great Job" from Mrs. Tefertiller! But don't look at past forum posts, you'll find I need to be allotted more than one mistake a year!

    Blessings,

    Hi Michelle,

    This is so nit picky but on week 3 of the 2nd grade phonics guide on Tuesday of the phonics for spelling #7 says "which in the only word that begins with a consonant blend?" The answer is "them." Isn't "th" a consonant team?

    Heidi

    P.S. This doesn't count against your mistakes per year average because who really knows the difference between consonant teams and consonant blends?!?

    You are right it is a team. I have noted the change in our proof because, even though minor (not nit picky), we want to be correct!

    Thank you!

    Good morning Michelle,

    I have another question/correction, I think. On week 8 spelling on Tuesday, word study question #6 asks about l-blend words with a long vowel sound. The answer lists blind and glue. Should float be included? Also, I’m having a hard time explaining glue. What vowel rule makes it long?

    Thank you!

    Heidi,

    I will check this out tomorrow when I am in the office. The word float definitely has a consonant l-blend. The vowel rule to help with the word glue is really more of a little poem to help remember why:

    When two vowels go walking the first one does the talking.

    The vowel teams really just need to be memorized.

    Blessings,

    With glue I think it sounds more like oo as in boo than the long u. This might be dialectical though. She doesn’t have trouble with reading but with spelling, I see her relying on her memory and what looks “right” more than phonetic rules. We’ll review the vowel teams again tomorrow.

    You are correct that with the ue team you hear more of the oo portion of the long u sound.
