Math and reading workbook pages will be coming home periodically. Please know that I DO NOT correct every page/problem…so if there are mistakes, that is ok. I often will glance at a page or ask kids to make corrections, but not on every single paper. They are practice pagesJ. We also do not do every page in the reading packet. If your child wants to do those pages at home, it is perfectly fine and they will get extra credit for returning them to school on Friday when homework is due. I give a sticker for each week of completed work and an extra sticker for extra credit. 5 stickers=prize from prize box!
We have been working on so many routines in our room! One thing we are spending a lot of time on is Daily 5. Daily 5 is a time where children are learning to be independent readers and writers. They will be using this during our small group reading time when they have to work independently of the teachers. We have and will continue practicing these skills and working on our STAMINA by adding time each day for kids to read to self, work on writing notebooks, word wall words and eventually listening centers and partner reading.
Open House is Thursday from 6-7. This will be a student led event for your child to share some of the things that happen in our day. I will be able to answer general curriculum questions but if you would like to talk about your child’s specific progress, let’s make a time before or after school on another day. See you there!
