Phonics Focus: Students practice reading and writing words that have the long /e/ sound (free, teach, wheel, meat, etc.)
Vocabulary Strategy: using the dictionary to find word meanings; alphabetical order
Students review the high frequency words: about, everything, first, her, of, slowly, store, story, two, world.
Our fluency goal this week is to read with great accuracy, taking the time to correctly decode each word and self-correct when needed.
This week in the book bags, students brought home a short, black and white reader, Sweet Pea, the Black Sheep, that reviews the weekly phonics skill. Reading this together with your child will help him/her build better accuracy and comprehension.
Remember to also be reading each night, if possible, but at least 3x per week for 20 minutes. Have your child remember to mark a sticker on his/her reading calendar for February.
