Oh The Things They Will Say....What's in a Name?
Today during Reading instruction we were busily categorizing words with the sound of /l/ in them. One category contained words that begin with /l/; one for words with /l/ as a final sound; and a category for words that have /l/ somewhere in the middle.
The activity was going along really well, especially when we discovered that many of our names contain the sound of /l/. Lillian, Tyler, Danielle, Collier, Riley, Miller, Lance, and Lexi just to name a few. And then B, (who hasn't an /l/ anywhere in his name) raised his hand to contribute to the group, And boy did he ever when he excitedly exclaimed, "Mrs. Pearce I know someone ....Will Ferrell!"
