To kick off our year of Word Study, we read "There's an Ant in Anthony" by Bernard Most, and the kiddos found another word that has an "ant" and illustrate their sentence. I know I have a Southern accent at times, but so do some of my students. Based on the following picture, I think I need to work on checking my accent at the door, or at least focus on my articulation!!
"There's an ant in reant"... "I think you mean rent."
