If the field day is outside, please dress your child in weather appropriate clothing. They may bring sunscreen and a drink. I can help apply the sunscreen if needed.

Reading at Home

Sight Words

Please make sure you are practicing sight words with their child every night. Sight word recognition improves reading fluency and automaticity, allowing the student to focus their efforts on the more mentally demanding task of reading comprehension. Here is a list of sight words they are working on right now.

Reading Minutes

Please make sure to have your child read 20 minutes every night. Reading can include; sight words, listening to someone read, reading to someone, reading apps, myon, writing sight words, and practicing spelling words. Please make sure to keep track of your child's reading minutes on their reading log that will be sent home in their Friday Folders at the beginning of each month. Excelsior Springs School District requires that students read 400 minutes a month.
