Picture Day is Wednesday, September 12th.
We will start to assign spelling words this week. There will not be a spelling test this week. We will start giving spelling tests every Friday in October.
We will start assigning homework this week. For math, there will be a worksheet that accompanies the math lesson taught that day in class. For reading, please have your child read the weekly story at least 3 times and return the story to school every day. We expect students to read 20 minutes every day. Also, have your child practice the spelling pattern and writing spelling words each week.
We will start assigning sight words this week. Please practice reading these at home with your child every day - the words will get progressively more difficult as the year goes on. Students should be able to read sight words quickly and without hesitation.
Please return school forms (emergency contact, etc.) Thanks!
We will read Don’t Need Friends and discuss characters and setting in the story. We will be practicing Daily 5 – Read with a Partner. Also, we will review how to select just-right books for read to self, finding a good spot to read, how to discuss a book with a partner, and how to choose another book to keep reading. This is to prepare students for literacy centers, which is small-group work time with peers.
