The First Tortilla, Unit 4: Week 5

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.

This one was the first balloon to arrive in our neighborhood.  It landed right around the corner from our house .

Here's another one that was going down behind our neighbor's house across the street.

This one was right above our back yard.
Also I've been having a hard time linking a picture to another site in Blogger recently.  Is anyone else having this problem?  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Thanks Becky! We use the older version of Reading Street, but we are still studying the same phonics skill: oo and u. Yay! Thanks so much for your gameboard - as always!

  3. I so very much want to use your great resources you have developed, but sadly the links won't work for me. The site is unavailable for some reason.
