We will be reviewing this week in Unit 14.  Please encourage your children to "tap out" unfamiliar words this summer :).

Trick words will be coming home every new unit in your child's Trick Word composition book.  PLEASE keep this book in your child's folder and practice these words nightly in any way your choose. (spell aloud, sidewalk chalk, sand, shaving cream, write...etc)

Reading Workshop

We will be reviewing skills and listening and responding to various read alouds over the next week. 

RAZ Kids info was sent home on 1/28.  This is just for fun at home, and will be utilized during our "Listen to Reading" center at school.  Your child may do RAZ kids in lieu of their book baggie 1 night per week.  Please note RAZ Kids on the weekly log.

(* is a great beginning reader site*   

Take a look at the Learn To Read link.)
