When I was putting Britton to bed tonight, I had the “Goodnight Moon” book to read to her, but instead she read it to ME! She read each word- with the exception of “comb”. I can definitely see the a-has with her flashcards too. They go much quicker and it seems as if everything (sightwords/readying) has clicked!
Here is an email from her teacher to the parents tonight:
I am making an effort to read with each child each week. Please let me know how it is going and continue to read to and with them at home. It is really starting to click. Practice those sight words.. you will get more soon! If you don’t have them on a ring, make sure to stop by and have Mrs. X make you a set.. it is really important!
Watch out for a notice about a research project on the presidents later on this week. This presentation will be oral, not written.
Also, don’t forget to make the Valentine’s box for next week and start addressing the Valentines in advance so it is not overwhelming.
I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful class. I have so much support and appreciate the time parents spend at school and at home to make this an even better year.
