News and Updates from Mrs. Adelman - March 5, 2021
From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman
Hi Warwick Bears!
On behalf of the entire Warwick staff, we are excited to announce a new edition to our weekly newsletters. Each week we will include a spotlight parent resource video. This will be a short video that will provide a tip, trick, or technique to incorporate at home, while also giving a glimpse into the daily student activities at Warwick.
This week you will find below a video about our K-2 phonics program, Reading Horizons, and a few tips and tricks for nightly reading at home.
Ella, Olivia, and I read every night and I rarely stopped to think about the importance of telling the girls the author, taking a picture walk, and asking questions. This is a great way to get them thinking about the concepts of print, and Ella loves pointing out the items that she knows in the pictures.
We hope you like the parent resources that we will continue to put together! If you have any ideas for a video that you like to see, please let me know. Think of these resources as our Warwick YouTube!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Amy Adelman
