We had an AMAZING first week of school!
Here are a few things to know for our 2nd week of school:
Reading Calendar: Your child will be coming home with their reading calendar on Tuesday. This calendar needs to stay in their home folder. Your child’s reading homework is to read four times a week for 10 minutes each. Please initial the calendar wheny our child reads. Their goal is to read 140 minutes by the end of September.
Poetry Folder: Students will received their Poetry Folder on Tuesday. Every Monday (or beginning of the week), your child will come home with a poem we have read together in class. We will be working with these poems all week. Their homework is to read the poem three times by the following Monday. They may read to anyone including calling grandparents or friends, reading to pets, or stuffed animals. After your child reads the poem they can color in a star on the page. The repetitive reading will help students build confidence in their reading while developing skills. The Poetry Folder should come back to school every day. This can count towards their 10 minutes of reading homeowork!
