Guided Reading Folders
SUPER IMPORTANT: Guided Reading Folders and Books!
Starting after the break, you will see a guided reading folder inside your child's backpack.
Inside this folder is a list of sight words to practice at home, as well as a list of reading strategies to help your child when they get stuck on a word.
Also, there will be leveled books inside the folder. That means that I have purposely chosen this book for your child based on their reading level. There may be one book, or two, it just depends on the week. These books are to STAY in the folder when you aren't reading them! They must be returned back to school.
I am going to do my best to make sure folders and books come home on MONDAYS. (sometimes it can be very difficult to get through all reading groups and Tuesdays may be the day they are brought home). I am asking your child to keep the folder in their backpack all week and for them to READ THE BOOKS AT HOME each night! These books may seem easy for them- and that's okay! We have already read these books in the classroom with me in their reading group. They are taking them home to show you what they learned and to build their reading confidence.
Folders and books need to be returned on FRIDAYS!
We use them daily for all sorts of learning so if you could even pick up one for us next time you're at the store it would be greatly appreciated.
