So this week in Reading Street we will be reading the story The First Tortilla. If you have the older version of Reading Street, I don't think you have this story. Our phonics skill to study this week is Vowel Digraph oo, ue, ew, and ui. Here is the game board that we will use along with several other activities listed below.

Also, we did get to see some wonderful hot air balloons up close yesterday! I was actually in the bathroom and suddenly heard this loud noise outside. I thought, "What in the world!" Then I heard a fire roaring noise several seconds later. We ran outside and took these pictures in our neighborhood.
