Reading: We will be reading the following stories: Go, Go, Go, Tag, Let’s Tap, Wag, Hop, Hide!, along with other stories in small
group sessions . Ask your child about one of the stories. Please read the ones with your child that are in their textbook.
We are also working on beginning and middle sounds of words and pictures as well as the following word endings: -op, -ot, -en, -et,
-ug, -ut, -up. We have a rhyming song too!! It goes like this: Sound, Sound, Sound alike
Except where they begin,

Please cut out the word flash cards and practice them everynight, but return them in the blue folder for now everyday.
