I have been teaching early elementary deaf and hard of hearing students for several years now.  I noticed that one area, that my students really struggled in was word families.  We don’t “sound out” words obviously, because we can’t hear the sounds, but we can learn to recognize spelling patterns. However, many of my students are also English language learners, so they needed A LOT of picture support to help them connect with the words. This summer I made a picture supported word family unit to help build their understanding.  My students are LOVING them!  They are recognizing the word patterns, learning to spell the words, and using the words in their conversations and their writing. I am so proud of them!

One More Shout Outs to an Amazing TPT seller.
I recently bought This Pack Magnets-Magnetic-and-Non-Magnetic-Objects-Real-Picture-Cards from Shelia Melton.  We has so much fun using it this week!  I cut out the pictures and we used one class period to predict if we thought the objects were magnetic or non-magnetic.
These were our predictions.  
The next day, I brought in all the REAL items to match the pictures (as best as I could) Then we tested the items to see if our predictions were correct! 

It was a blast!!!! The students were engaged and excited to try out each of the things on table.  After our tests, we resorted the items onto the chart.  
Here is our final result!
Thank youSheila Melton for this great product!
I have been posting lots of fun Fall pictures lately. However, it appears that the beauty of fall has left us and the beauty of winter has begun! Although we have yet to see any snow here in Southern Idaho, I have been waking up in the morning to these beautiful frosty scenes.  

I hope you have a GREAT week! I got new Sponge Bob socks this week and, well, they just make me smile!  I hope they help you too!
