We hope you had a relaxing and fun weekend. Please remember that this is a short week for the students.There will be no school this Thursday and Friday.
This week, your child will be inquiring into the following:
- Phonics-The students will be reviewing all the older words through various games and activites. You can help your child learn these words by reviewing the words with your child each night and showing them vairous patterns in the words; for example, you can show your child how the word play and day rhyme and belong to the same word family. There is NO spelling challenge this week.
- Reading-This week we will focus on gathering informationm from non-fiction texts.We will be reading and discussing about Thanksgiving.
You can help your child better understand this skill by reading with them nightly and asking him/her to tell you what genre the book was and why. Your child will be a better reader if he/she reads each night for 10 minutes and you ask him/her comprehension questions about his/her reading.You can find more information about reading with your child at the bottom of this blog.
