Encouraging reading is one of the most important things we can do to help your child succeed. It can be tough finding the right books to keep them interested, which is why I am so excited that our class will be participating in Scholastic Reading Club this school year.

Family Times Packet - Due 11/20
     This packet is a review of all of the phonics/spelling patterns that we worked on throughout our Unit 1 study. We will have a Unit 1 assessment on Monday 11/20. 

Your child will also bring home copies of our Decodable Readers with a focus on recognizing and reading words with the inflected endings. Please have them read this short passage to you multiple times until they are able to fluently read the story as a component of the weekly assessment is their ability to fluently read words and sentences with these spelling patterns.
