Runners Club- wear tennis shoes

Please send Purple Reading Folders back to school with books inside! I will keep these over the weekend and students will have new books placed inside their folder on Monday morning to take home. If they do not return their purple folders, I will not be able to send new books home with your child. Please help us out with responsibility! :)

What can I help my child with at home?!?

Reading-


Read with your child every night. Make sure you have them point to every word as they read. Remind them of "Lips the Fish" so they get their mouth ready when they read and say the first sound they see!

-Practice syllables! Give your child a word, have them clap, stomp or snap out the syllables in the word!

-PRACTICE SIGHT WORDS AT HOME!! Kids can practice spelling their sight words with cereal, magnetic letters etc. You could post the sight words on index cards around the house for your child to read! :)

Writing-

-Have your child write a sentence (or 2) about their day! Other ideas could be write about the book they just read, write a letter to a friend, create their own story!

Math-

-Practice counting with your child all the way to 100... and then backwards from 20.

- Do activities to have your child guess how many more to make 10? For example, when you are making dinner, tell your child you need 10 spoons, you have 4, how many more do you need?!? (Then tell them OOPS! I mean we only need 4, let's put the rest back! :))

-Go on a shape hunt around your house. What shapes can you find in clocks, TVs, and other toys

Wanted: Parent Volunteers to come and present to the class!

We will be diving into the study of the various winter holidays soon. These studies involve Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, and Kwanzaa! If your family celebrates one of these holidays at home (or a different winter holiday) and you would be willing to come and share with our class one day- we would LOVE to have you!! We would love to hear some traditions in your family, food that you eat, and other holiday customs you participate at home. Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in and we can work out a day/time that works best for you!! :) Thank you!!
