One of our goals in First Grade is learning to read. We will be working on this goal every day and you have a part to play at home. During the first quarter, I will send home a poem on Mondays with a family page, and a log sheet. The routine is simple: Enjoy the poem together. Then…. spend a few minutes doing the activities on the family page. I will mark the log sheet to tell you which ones to use with your child, but feel free to try activities from the other two sections as well. On the log sheet, record the amount of time you and your child have spent on the routine, 5-15 minutes is fine. Please have your child return the log sheet each day. Soon they will be bringing home books to read. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. Together we will help your child become a strong and successful reader.
