A message about our Nightly Fluency Passages

Practicing with fluency passages is an important part of helping your child improve with his/her ability to read fluently.  If your child makes many errors while reading or the reading does not sound like a spoken conversation, he or she needs to practice reading fluency.  Early readers spend a great deal of mental energy sounding out (decoding) the words on the page.  Their reading often times sound robotic - not fluent.  As a child learns the phonetic rules and can apply them with ease along with having automatic recall of all sight words, reading begins to sound more like fluent reading.

HOMEWORK-

Your child will have a minimum of 40 minutes of homework every evening.  This may or may not include the required 20 minutes of reading a night.  I will be assigning math, spelling, reading log, and fluency every evening.  Most assignments will be posted on my website at the beginning of each week.  **Important** If your child is having difficulty in a certain subject, please inform me via email or a note.  Please do not correct homework errors.   This is how I can evaluate your child’s understanding of the assignment/lesson.

WORD PROBLEM STEPS:


Remember these steps when solving word problems:

Visualize and ask yourself as you read the problem- 

1)  What do I know?
Write that down
Ex:  Mrs. Jones found 50 red and 40 yellow m&ms in her pocketbook.

2) What am I trying to find out?
**Write that down
Ex:  Altogether, Mrs. Jones found _____ m&ms in her pocketbook. 

3) How do I find it out? (what operation?) 
Write that down

4) Questions to ask yourself:
 Should I make a pattern?
 Should I draw a table?
 Can I draw a picture?
 Is there more than one step?

5) Check your work
