VCe is one of those rules that just sticks with you. Many of my kiddos who know the e is silent and the vowel it is associated with is long... have no idea there is an actual phonetic rule associated with it. But they "get it" the second you spell it all out for them.
The whirlwind of phonetic rules for long vowels will fill the remainder of our school year. Bossy e is the best way to start it off!

Our social studies standard this month is all about where we live; continents, countries, state, town and where we fit into all of that. Last week we read Me on the Map.
This week we are completing the Where I Live Activity. It is a perfect activity and visual for who large the world is and what a speck we really are.
We are also continuing with our winter themed writing.
For word work practice, the kids are continuing to "play" with our Winter Word Work Games.
It includes a sight word practice game, digraph match, and a long vowel sort.
A lot of you have already hit your 100 day mark. Ours is around the bend in early February. During writing on the 100th day, we will be doing our When I'm 100 activity.
