Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Freeman's Class
Be sure to check your student's F.I.S.H book EVERY DAY. There will be important notes, reminders, and forms that require your attention, as well as a daily behavior report! Remember to return the things in the "Return to School" folder and keep the things at home found in the "Keep at Home" folder. Parents, please initial the box on the behavior log for each day your student is in school.This tells me you have reviewed the contents in the F.I.S.H book for that day.
In Reading, we are using our reading strategies to sound out words. Below is a list of strategies for your child to try when they come to a word they don't know.
When I Read:
I can look at the illustrations. (pictures)
I can get my mouth ready for the first sound.
I can tap it out or sound it out.
I can think about what makes sense.
I can read the sentence again.
I can check for endings I know.
I can look for chunks I know.
I can skip the word and read on.
I can ask for help.
When you read with your child, ask questions about the story:
Who are the characters?
What is the setting?
Was there a problem in this story? How was it solved?
Were there any tricky words in this story?
How did this story make you feel? Can you make a connection to the story?
In Fundations we are reviewing all of our letters and sounds. The students love this time of the day!
We are off to a great start! Thank you parents for all of your hard work and support!
