Word Study Focus

Dear Parents,

We are excited to share that you have the opportunity to help reinforce word study with your child at home. We will be sending home a list of 10 words each week. There will be words that focus on our word study and words that are on our high frequency word list. We will also send a menu of activities to support your child. Students will be assessed on Fridays and we will use the information to help monitor your child's progress. Thanks for your support. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Word Study Focus in not a spelling test.

We are teaching the students how to identify and apply a reading pattern to become a fluent reader and writer. The choice board has been updated to help practice at home. The words that we provide are examples how the pattern works. The words we send home are not guaranteed to be used for the Friday assessment.

If you want to know a little about the pattern that the students are learning check out this short video.

Focus: CVC/CVCe

Birthday Treats

We know how much celebrating a school birthday means to the students. As of now, we are not letting outside treats for birthdays. You can purchase ice cream for the class 2 weeks before the day you need it.
