Nightly Homework Practice

**Don't forget to have your child read their baggie book at least 3 times with/to you. Don't forget to sign the reading log each night. No books will be sent home on Fridays.

**We will begin sending home a sight word list each week. Students need to practice recognizing/reading these words each night. We will have recognition tests on Fridays on these words. I will send home a list of suggested activities you can do with your child to help them begin to recognize these words. Sight word recognition is very important-90% of texts students read are sight words (words that cannot be sounded out).
