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 short vowels and long vowels, upper and lowercase letter recognition, sounds and rhyming words and writing our first and last names.
March 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 continue to work on our "reading superpowers"
***Don't forget to use the RazKids online program at home.

•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?
