Mrs. Pitcher's Title 1 Update

October Issue

Phono Cards

We have been working on our phono cards (they are stapled like a booklet). These cards are designed to help students understand letters, letter sounds and rules that apply to the sounds. By practicing these cards, students will enhance their reading, writing and spelling skills. Please keep the cards in the "reading pocket" and return to school daily. Students can practice the cards at home after reading his/her book. Ask your child to tell you the rule for some of the sounds.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

I am excited to meet with you during your child's scheduled conference. Conferences will be October 22nd and October 27th. Please check with your child's teacher to confirm your exact day and time.

Sight Words

Your child has been bringing home sight word cards. Once your child has mastered reading the cards, please have him/her practice spelling the word. Our goal is to have your child be able read and spell the words with fluency. As your child masters both reading and spelling the words, you can take the cards out of the baggie. I will be adding 2-3 (or more) a week!
