read the baggy book sent home every night! As you read please point out
things like: the front of the book, the title, where you start reading,
do you know any letters/words, what do you do at the end of a sentence,
where do you go after the last word on the page, etc...
also review ALL highlighted letters and words. The highlighted words
and letters are ones we have studied for at least one week in smile
groups. Your child should have no problems with these, but it is
important to review daily. You may also introduce new letters or words
if you feel your child is ready for more! I encourage parents to work on
more than just the highlighted ones!
Also, please work on having your child memorize the number on the index card.
This is the number they will use in the lunch room, media center, and
computer lab. It is very important that they learn this number. Thanks
for your help in working with your child on this!
*This year as part of the daily homework I am asking parents to have their child work on Lexia Core for 20mins each night. Lexia Core is a computer reading program that works on your child's individual reading level. Please do not give them answers. This program is designed to reteach questions students get incorrect. This program allows me to see the errors they make and adjust their independent reading level. A not explaining how to log in will be sent home with your child.
If you have any questions about this please let me know.
Letters we know: Ii, Tt, Ss, Mm, Nn, Oo, Cc, Dd, Ee
Words we know: I, a, go, is, it, you, can
