Take Home Readers
When the children begin Reading Workshop in class, there will be one or more take-home readers (beginning in October). Please have your child read these books to you each evening. It is imperative that the children build their reading stamina, with a goal of 10 minutes of reading daily. Additionally, have your child practice counting orally to 100. Students should also practice making sets of numbers up to 30 with objects (ex: create a set of 18 pieces of cereal). Be sure to check the newsletter & email for any additional assignments.HandwritingPlease remind your child to "always start their letters at the top" when they are writing! Also, encourage your child to use upper & lower case letters where appropriate. Please note: upper case letters are used only at the beginning of sentences and proper nouns. If a child uses upper case letters inappropriately, it is a very difficult to break this habit.
