This weeks spelling focus is ccvc words (consonant, consonant, vowel, consonant). We started off with listing all the vowels and consonants. I then gave them an example of a ccvc word on the board. Next, I read the students Mr McGee and the Biting Flea. Their first challenge was to find the ccvc words in the book! They managed to find quite a few, some that even had another consonant on the end. In their reading groups they had either build, match or find ccvc words. They had a ball, they didn’t want to stop!
