Thanks for coming to curriculum night on Monday. We had a great turn out and I enjoyed sharing all about first grade! I wanted to review a few important items, especially for those who could not come.
1. Book Pouches will come home on Thursday afternoon for the first time. Each student will have two books in the pouch - one good-fit book that he/she can read independently and one special book that is chosen based on interest. Please have your child read the good-fit book first. The special book will most likely be a book that parents read aloud or perhaps your child would like to "read the pictures" on his/her own. Please compliment your child on his/her reading:-) If you think your child should be selecting different good-fit books, email or call me so we can discuss it. Thanks so much!!
2. Reading Logs will also be inside the book pouches. Please only record the books that came from our classroom. Put the reading log back in the book pouch daily.
3. Word Wall Words are also inside the book pouches. Have your child review these words daily. It should only take a couple minutes. Please put the baggie of words back in the book pouch right after your child practices them.
Thanks for all of your support! I'm looking forward to a great year working together.
