Essential Question: "Who would like to learn how to read using the computer?!"
- What are some "am" words?
- Who can name some "ig" words?
- Who remembers some "in" words?
- Who would like to come and write on the white board three "in" words?

Assessment: There are many ways that these websites promote student learning. Students were able to navigate through the sites while listening to or following the prompts and directions. Students were able to match letters to their correct sounds, match upper case letters to lower case letters, and read (or be read to) beginning reader books. I will assess student learning with this assignment by performing formative assessments. I will document student progress and print out their work for their portfolios to show parents.
