Please practice reading sight words with your child each night. The YELLOW list will be sent home on Friday, 9/25. I will begin assessing students next week. Your support is crucial!
We are using a phonics program called Fundations in our classroom this year. I am sending home more information in your child's Friday folder on Friday, 9/25. Your support at home will help your child be successful in our classroom. Please use the resources provided to practice learning at home.
RAZ Kids and Headsprout
Your child has home access to TWO wonderful reading resources. During a regular/non-COVID year, I would be sending books home every night for your child to read with you. I cannot send books home at this time, so it is imperative that you are reading books at your child's reading level each and every night! Please use these resources and let me know if you need support logging in. Username/password is located in the Home Learning Folder, but I'm happy to send the info home again.
