Today we’re working on the sound at the end of the words “key” and “money."

dollar money honey ------------------------------- Say It Have your child point to the word "key" and say it 3 times: _key



------------------------------- Blend It Have your child read these words: key








Read It Have your child read the passage below:

Let’s Play Hockey!

When it gets very, very cold in the valley, the lake freezes over.

When it’s good and solid, my best mate Mickey and I can play hockey.

I slip on my skates.

We get sticks and pucks and drag nets onto the rink.

We take turns passing and shooting. The key is to trap the puck with soft hands.

We skate until it gets late. After we put all the stuff away, we get drinks: Hot chocolate for me! ------------------------------- Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:

  1. Do they play hockey in the summer or the winter? How do you know?

  2. What sort of equipment does the author need to play hockey?
