Reflection: High Expectations Santa's Real or Nonsense Words - Section 1: Why Real or Nonsense?


It is absolutely imperative that our kindergarten students develop a conceptual understanding of CVC words- how to decode them, how to read them in context and how to write them.  An easy way for us to support this task it by giving our students as much practice with CVC knowledge as possible.  Letting students decode words and decide if they have meaning is a task that takes little planning but really helps students build a solid foundation for learning how to create, read and write longer words!
