Hello all!! We have been doing a great job learning, figuring out rules and procedures, and building our stamina! Last week we were able to introduce and rotate through 3 of the Daily 5 stations. The kids learned how to read to self, listen to reading, and practice building words at word work.
We are going to move on from rules and procedures to begin an author study on Kevin Henkes! He is one of my FAVS!! We will be talking about author's purpose and character traits.
In writing the kids are learning that they can write about what the love. They have been busy filling in hearts with drawings and labels of the people, things, and places that they love. We will officially launch our writing workshop this week complete with folders!
Don't forget to check your kiddo's backpack! Homework folders are full of spelling, math, and sight word practice. The only things due this Friday are the spelling contract and math papers. The sight word list can be initialed when your child can read ALL 40 words fluently. When they have mastered the pre-primer list I will send home the primer words.
Fundraising packets and Scholastic orders are due TOMORROW!
Have a fabulous week!
