Make words with Cookie Monster!

Hi boys and girls! I hope you are all having a great vacation! I have looking for more fun things we can learn from on the computer! I have also been eating some healthy holiday cookies! Yummy! Eating these cookies made me think of cookie monster from Sesame Street. It also made me think of this Cookie Monster Alphabet Soup game:

It's just like the Alphabet Soup Game we played for Word Study but this time you're making words other than just your name!

Hope you have fun!

Can you read this word?

Today, I gave out a paper with all of our word wall words in everyone's folder. This way you can study the words when you're at home! Knowing these words will help us when we read and when we write stories!

Also, I found this website to help too! We tried it in class today!
See how many words you can read!
