Schedule Changes – Reading Groups

As you are aware, your child has not brought home a new book in his or her green folder as regularly as they have previously. This is due to several reasons: PSSA testing was happening and we had whole group lessons rather than small group lessons, there have been days that supports were needed elsewhere and our schedule changed in the classroom, and currently, we are wrapping up the year and working on end-of-year assessments. All of this to say, we are still reading and writing it’s just happening in different ways. You may still have your child continue to practice reading and doing high-frequency words but they will no longer earn stars or prizes for doing so!

Finally, please continue to have your child read and write throughout the summer so all that they have learned is not lost! We have made great progress this year and you should be proud of your little readers and writers! Thank you for your support and for encouraging reading and writing at home.
