Literacy

This week we worked on...

  • double e words (green, needle)
  • discussing main characters in stories we read
  • story retell
  • sight words: your, who, grade


to help your child with sight word recognition, check out our class spelling city page at

under "vocabulary and spelling lists" click "sight word practice-list 2"

The children can play different games to help with reading/recognizing these words. I will update lists each Friday!
