I have the seat work text and the teachers key. It is talking about special sounds. Page 37 has a list of words, and it says circle the special sounds: gnat anoint knight about kneeling washing knocking spoil strong away wanting known I don't see any "common" denominators in these words and there is no list that says what "special sounds" she is using. I think I'm using the program the wrong way. We don't have a teachers curriculum for it, just the workbook and the teachers key. On the website I have looked for a "teachers guide" or something, can't find anything. I don't know what I'm teaching when I'm only using these worksheets!!! Is there a book that tells me what to teach? How do we circle the special sounds in these words if we have no clue what "special sounds" they are talking about?? HELP!
