Weekly Theme:

Remember our reading goal is 15 minutes a night/five nights a week.  Please read to your child and have him/her read to you!  This is so important!  Thanks for all you do!

We have been practicing writing in our class.  The more kids write, the better writers they become.  Research shows that kids who are good writers are usually good readers.  Encourage your child to write grocery lists, make cards, write letters, stories, etc.  Let them “stretch out” words by listening for the sounds they hear in each word and writing down the sounds they can hear.  Don’t worry that your child does not spell each word correctly.  Encourage them to (1) say the word they want to write slowly, (2) stretch out the word, (3) listen for each sound, (4) write down the sounds they know and (5) try their best without a lot of help from you.

As always, please feel free to contact me anytime!  I love your children and enjoy seeing them succeed.  Thank you for your support at home!
