Beginning next week, a pouch of books will be coming home with your child. You can use these books for the reading portion of the homework checklist. Book pouches will come home MONDAYS and need to be returned on FRIDAYS like our regular homework (this week they will come home on Tuesday since we will not be in school on Monday). In the folder you will find a few different things:
This sheet will have sounds, words, nonsense words, trick words, and phrases that go along with what we are practicing in the classroom. The goal is to have your child practice so they can read the words smoothly. We recognize that some children can do this readily while others are still working on tapping out the sounds and blending. Our goal is for all of the students to practice daily, working on accuracy, fluency, and using expression (especially when reading the phrases).
These readers will vary by student and may look different week by week. They may be in the form of a folded paper book, paper booklet, or a regular small reader. We are working to individualize these books to match our learners so book bags will vary. PAPER READERS CAN STAY HOME FOR YOU TO KEEP, mark up, color, etc. Any book that is a published book, should be returned in the book bag on Friday.
The paperback book included in your child’s bag is self-selected and may not match their reading level. Please use those books as an opportunity to share reading with your child by either reading aloud the book or sharing the reading duty with your child. These books should be returned on Friday.
