Rockin' and Readin': Rockin' and Reading: '-en' Words!
Sing, dance, and even rap your way to reading. Join Mizz KT and the "-en" word family as we learn the sounds h sound (as in horse), p sound (as in panda), short e sound (as in elephant), and n sound (as in neck), the CVC blends "hen" and "pen," and the sight words "this," "is," "a," "the" and "in." We'll use music and some funny moments to eventually read the sentences "This is a hen." and "The hen is in the pen." You'll be so busy singing and dancing, that you'll forget that you're getting Kindergarten Ready and learning to read actual sentences! See you in class!
