Classroom News

        Parent teacher conferences are coming up in a couple of weeks. Please be watching for a sign up sheet in your child’s Tuesday folder.  I am looking forward to visiting you about your child’s progress and behavior.

                  We finished up our first reading unit and book and will be getting a new one this week.  The stories are becoming progressively harder and will require more practice time.  Reading each night and asking the questions on the bookmark are very important.  Also, practicing the sight words and repeated reading is essential in developing fluency and accuracy when reading.  Successful reading shows a high correlation to success in school as well as later in life.

                  I will begin sending home practice sheets for make-believe word (nonsense words) for you to practice with your child.  Accurate reading of these words tell a lot about your child’s reading ability and understanding of the alphabetic principals.

 All words are single syllable and short vowel sounds. In December, your child will need to read 13 whole words in order to benchmark. Keep reading and practicing sight words.
