Antonia has had trouble with spelling/decoding spelling patterns, and there are street signs near her house she never felt confident saying correctly. After a lesson on vowel teams, she was talking about these streets and she realized she could use what she learned in a lesson on vowel teams and pronounced them correctly.

Beacon - say the name of e and the a is silent.

She said she knows how she was saying them wrong before and now she knows she'll be understood when she gives directions.
