Early Literacy Idea
Help your child develop comprehension skills by having them retell the important parts of the story.
Remember our reading goal is 15 minutes a night/five night a week. Please read to your child and have him/her read to you! This is so important! Thanks for all you do!
Please return the signed January reading calendar with your child for their free pizza certificates. It sure is exciting to hear them reading and figuring out unfamiliar words. Keep up the great work at home by regularly having your child read to you and you read to them.
We have been writing in our journals using inventive spellings. The students are instructed to (1) say the sentence they want to write (2) segment each word and listen for the sounds they know (3) write each sound (4) try their best.
The kids are becoming great at figuring out number pairs (or number bonds) and then completing addition problems. We talk about why more than one number pair is possible (6= 1 + 5, 6= 4 + 2, 6= 3 + 3).
Thank you again for all you do! Enjoy your week and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
