I can't believe it's the end of the year! I have really enjoyed teaching this class. They are always so excited about learning new things. In April we will focus on long vowel E; sight words come & does; phoneme additon, deletion, substitution, rhyming and long vowel review; addition & subtraction fluency, numbers to 100. Please practice sight words nightly as they will be tested on all 40 sight words. We are working hard on reading with more fluency. Practice word fluency nightly using the paper that goes home every Monday. Time your child for 1 minute to see how many words he/she can read. Our goal is for them to read 20 words in a minute.
Home project: Due May 6: Help your child make a craft/art project using natural resources. It can be made of anything from nature- wood, plants, seeds, nuts, paper, rocks, shells etc. The children will give an oral presentation on their nature art/craft.

Books with go home every Monday and Wednesday. Books must be returned in order to get a new book.
