Mrs. Fry's First Grade Newsletter
Week of November 14th
CLASS SPELLING BEE WINNERS!!
To our parent chaperones for the zoo field trip, THANK YOU!! We had a wonderful time and could not have done it without you!
In order to encourage reading each day and logging their minutes into the Fluency Folder, I am going to begin downloading and printing out readers to send home. If you would like a book sent home to read please email me and I will send them this week. Remember that your student can read ANYTHING that is of interest to them. (Magazines, posters, cereal boxes, newspapers, etc.) The important thing is that they are reading daily to build fluency and logging their minutes into their Fluency Folder. Also, your student can read these items over and over again. The more they read it, the more comfortable they become with the material, and this builds fluency!
My goal is to take up the Fluency Folders each Thursday, give a 10 pt. homework grade, and return them the same day, As John Steinbeck so eloquently put it, "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." I am sitting here with about 10 folders in front of me now. If I don't return the folders as planned, just jot down your reading and fill it in when the folder returns home.
