Last week went very smoothly, your children make my job such a pleasure!! While out on supervision, I spent a lot of time watching to see if students were making play plans with their peers. They often need a bit of coaching at this stage. Please let me know if your child feels left out so I can link them up with friends or encourage them to arrange play plans prior to recess breaks.
We are working on letter names and sounds and we are beginning sight words from the pre primer list. Having your child find things around the house beginning with each letter of the alphabet is a fun way to reinforce letter sounds. Also, please check out the Dolch sight word link for the word lists.
As soon as our school has our subscription to Raz Kids activated, I will set up all of the students. It is a fantastic levelled reading computer program. Your child will have access to levelled appropriate books that they either read independently or have read to them. When they are able to answer the comprehension questions successfully, the program moves them along up the levels. I will send home a letter with all of the information this week or next.
Wednesday is the school blessing. It is a great way to meet other parents and have your children meet their classmates in an unstructured setting. This is also a great time to check in with me if you have any burning questions or concerns. Please check the school newsletter for all the details.
I have changed the link to the Show and Share Calendar so hopefully it will work for all of you now! Let me know if you are still having difficulty accessing it. As well, the Spelling City Link has been sent out this week. I hope your children enjoy the activities on the site.
Running Club begins Monday morning at 8:25 am. I am looking forward to a warm, wonderful week! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
