Division 24 : Mrs. Ens
A few important things to note:
*Kindergarten children are not required to be reading fluently by the end of the school year. Some children will be ready, some will not. Please don't fret about your child's reading level! :)
*It is okay if your child chooses to bring home the same reading booklet for a few days in a row. The booklets are primarily pattern books which will have the same words on each page (e.g. I see a lion, I see a tiger, I see a monkey, etc.). Sometimes a child will choose the same book because it is predictable and they find success reading the same book over and over. This is totally fine (even though you may feel like it is driving you crazy!). Our goal is for the students to find "reading" to be a positive experience!
*Simple repetitive language in books will help your child begin to recognize sight words and build their confidence. The children should be looking at the pictures to help them "guess" words when they are reading.
*Please make reading a positive experience! Cuddling up with your child, praising their hard work and problem solving skills, and having some quality one on one time, will help your child form a positive attitude about reading. This is our ultimate goal in Kindergarten!
Thank you for your support of and partnership in our Home Reading Program!

I am required to meet with at least one parent of each student in my class so I would appreciate it if you could find the time to meet with me! If these dates absolutely do not work for you, please contact me and we can make alternate arrangements. Thank you in advance!
