Dear Deer #bookaday August 18th
I am always in search of ways to make our Fundations program more....fun. At the third grade level, the program has a lot of rules about syllable types and exceptions to the rules. One part of the program emphasizes "sound alike words" or homophones. Dear Deer, by Gene Baretta, would be the perfect book to introduce the idea that some words sound alike but have different meanings. The book is playful and entertaining and the illustrations are colorful and fun. This will be one of the first books I read to kick off Fundations!
