Good Morning Jaguars!

Have a great day!

Daily Schedule


Go to the Morning Meeting

(Click the link to attend. Then, click “Join” and “Allow Meet to use camera and microphone.”)

Read the Morning Message (above) 


Reading Minilesson

You need to be able to read words with the “igh” pattern. 

“igh” makes a long i sound, like in light.

Here is a video about them.

Now, practice reading “igh” words with a Phonics Frog game. 

To set up the game, you will need to select “igh” (parent note: it’s in the bottom section under vowel digraphs).

To win the game, click to get your frog to jump across the rivers and roads. Remember, a real word is a safe spot for a frog to land!

Play Phonics Frog here!

Challenge: If you like Phonics Frog, try this challenge. On the home screen for Phonics Frog, click “Revise All.” Then you will be playing with lots more phonics patterns. 

If you spend a long time playing this game, it is okay to do Read to Self and then do less of the other options.


Read to Self

You should read from your book bag for 15 minutes. More is better, if you want to do more!

Give yourself two checks if you earned them!.
