A NEW Nine Weeks

Being a new 9 weeks thing are changing! Here are a few things that will be different from last nine weeks.

· Students can only get two “Oops I Made a Mistake” in order to participate in our Fun Friday activity.

· Each night Monday thru Thursday we are assigning a one minute timed reading of a story you will find in your child’s BRING RIGHT BACK side of their HOME folder.

  • To build your child’s fluency skills we are starting to send home weekly stories to help your child practice. Fluency helps you to comprehend the text and build confidence in reading . Every Monday at school we’ll do a cold read (reading the passage for the first time) and record how far your child read in the passage in one minute. Each night the same passage will be sent home. Please time your child’s progress each night of how many words were read correctly in 1 minute. Also ask them about the story using the retell hand in your child’s folder. On Friday your child will read the passage again at school (this will be the hot read) and you’ll be able to see the progress made throughout the week.

· Phonics- Red/Yellow/Green-Double s,l,f and sometimes z. At the end of a one syllable short vowel word you double the s,l,f and sometimes z. Ex. fuss, tell, cuff, buzz. Blue- an and am (glued sounds) ex. fan, ham

· WOW Bag Vocabulary winner, _____________ !! Keep using those vocabulary words and sight words each week. Use context clues when you read J One word a day will be introduced: overrun, cozy, squat, delivered, scolded
