For the remainder of the year, I will send home a homework packet in addition to the reading log and sight words. It is to be turned in on Friday and there will be 4 pages with the idea that your child completes one every night. The reading log will also change to include comprehension questions. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions after looking through the packet and log.


Please continue to work on sight words at home. There are many words in their homework books that cannot be decoded so they must be memorized. We have an incentive in the classroom. When a student learns 3 sets of sight words, they add their name to our ice cream cone and get a certificate from Kilwin's for a free scoop of ice cream! For each additional 3 sets of words memorized, they add their name to another scoop. We want to see everyone's name on the first scoop!
