Last week we read the story, Apples, Apples, Apples by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. The vocabulary words from this story were orchard, limb, and chart. In Jolly Phonics we learned the sounds of o & u.  The popcorn words were on & we.  In handwriting we practiced making the letter Aa and continued to print numbers 1-10.
