This afternoon, we read Rocket Writes A Story by Tad Hills. Rocket learned to read with the help of his teacher, yellow bird. Rocket decides to go on an adventure to collect words for his word tree because he wants to write a story. Along the way he meets a new friend, Owl. Owl is shy at first but learns to be brave and leave her nest. The children were very interested in the word tree. We talked about how we all know our letter sounds and should not be shy to try and put the sounds together. The children were brave, sounded out the letters in each of the words above and read them! We were all so excited!
