We are beginning our reading racers program this week. This program is to help our students read and spell the words that are the most common in our language. Each Monday your child will bring home a set of cards that they need to learn. We will test your child on those cards the following Friday. If the child is able to read the cards on Friday then they will get a congratulations certificate and they will be given a new list to learn. If they did not master their list by Friday they will continue with the same list the following week. This program will only work with help from home. Please plan to spend at least 5 minutes a day working on these cards with your child. I will not always tell you to practice these cards in your child’s homework packet. Please practice these cards on your own at home. A letter explaining the program in more detail will be sent home with your childs reading racers on Monday. Thank you for your participation.
What we are learning:
Reading This week we will be reviewing the alphabet. We will be working on our handwriting, and the correct way to write letters and numbers.
