Studying Chunks in Words

We've spent some time searching for four different chunks ('ide', 'at', 'ock', and 'ake') in words in our books and around our room. We've added to our list as we've discovered new words in our reading.

After finding bunches of words with these chunks we spent a bit of time reading some and then practiced writing words with them. We learned that knowing chunks can really help us as readers and writers.
