It’s official! First graders are word detectives.
We just finished intensive training to become word detectives. We have been hot on the trail trying to solve the case of the Silent E. For weeks we have been sent on missions to train how to solve tricky words. As our final mission we had to use everything we know about letters and sounds to solve tricky words that were hidden all over our room. The mission was a success! Now we have case files full of strategies in our brains that will help us solve tricky words when we read and write.
