These short slices of life can tell you a lot about our day.
I've been reading an excellent article about the six types of syllables. The stuff experienced readers just know, but little guys need to be taught explicitly. We've always identified double whammies (two of the same letter sitting together) but now we have a reason. Usually, the vowel in front of two consonants uses its short sound. We used our chart to find double whammy patterns.
We found all sorts of words that fit the rule, (purple)
noticed that double whammy L changes A's sound,
and some introduced some vowel teams. (orange)
And now, it's an Anchor Chart!
