Like Amanda & Stacia, I have a similar addiction to books. I have shelves full of them and even more boxes full of them. I often forget that I own certain books.
A couple of weeks ago, our word study pattern focus was on silent letters. I searched Pinterest looking for ideas and saw a pin for Silent Letters Loud and Clear by Robin Pulver. Much to my surprise, I found the book on my shelf.
My students loved listening to me trying to read the letter without the silent letters. Their favorite sentence "Cat rot this." instead of "Cait wrote this." They, also, loved trying to figure out what all the letters were made out of and decided that the b was made out of a frosted cupcake. By the time, we finished reading the book the students had a good understanding of silent letters, and most had found their 10 additional words for their homework.
