We have started reading! One night each week, your child will be bringing home a "take-home" book to practice reading.  These books will reinforce our sight words and letters and sounds that we have been working on.  Please have your child read the book two times, sign the paper, and return it to school.  You will be amazed at how well your child can read!

Bedside Five

I would like to encourage you to spend 5 minutes reviewing your letters, numbers, sounds, and words with your child immediately prior to putting your child to bed. This should only take about 5 minutes. Doing this will help your child roll the information over from their short term memory to their long term memory. Just a bit of trivia.... it takes 3 days for information to go from your short term memory to your long term memory. The goal is for your child to learn while they sleep! THIS WILL HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING!! :)
