High Frequency Words / Sight Words
The goal by June is to demonstrate mastery of the first 50 words; if your child is ready to continue on, please encourage that at home! The more words your child can retain, the better their fluency will be! If you would like another copy of the complete word list, please let me know and I will make sure to send one home!
Fundations: we will be working on lowercase and uppercase letter identification (letter / keyword (picture) / sound), rhyming, syllable counting, short vowels, beginning and ending sounds, conventions and CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words.
February Reader's workshop: we will be continuing to read from our book baggies. Please make sure the book baggies come back to school each and every day. Using the books from our bags, we will work on our "reading superpowers"
***Don't forget to use the RazKids online program at home.
February Writer's workshop: we are continuing to work on drawing and writing with details. Adding more to our picture, labeling things in our picture. Paying attention to writing conventions (capital letters, punctuation, spaces between words). We are also working on adding more to our writing, adding an ending, sharing our work with our partners. Students will be expected to use an alphabet chart, vowel chart and sight word chart to help them in their writing. We are continuing to work on writing true stories and telling a story across pages.
Past concepts that we will continue to review:
-Matching / sorting
-2d and 3d shapes
-Numbers to 10, counting and cardinality and 1:1 correspondence.
-Ordering number to 10
*Going forward we will be working on comparing numbers and measurement.

•Children learn by example, so let your child see you reading (a book, newspaper, cookbook, etc.)
Pick Good Fit Books
purpose for reading, interest, can they understand?, can they retell?, do they know most of the words?
