Last Literacy Tip
Tip#12: Reading is FUN!!!
This week’s tip is all about fun! J A great way to teach your child to love reading is to make daily reading activities fun and enjoyable. Use funny voices when you’re reading a book. Be silly and goofy and act out the funny parts of the story. Laugh out loud together as you read the amusing parts. When you make reading fun for your child you are encouraging them to want to read too. Through these fun activities you are really showing your child how to be a life-long reader, and most importantly one that reads for enjoyment! J What a powerful way to impact your child for a lifetime; while spending quality time with them. So have fun, be silly and read, read, read!!! Happy Reading!
Writing - We will continue working on informational writings. I am going to take a few days and review the important steps while writing (spaces, capitalization, punctuation, using word wall to help spell words correctly).
Math - Finish up our last math topic. We will be having our assessment on this unit Thursday.
