Week 15

Hello Parents!

Sight words: there, use, an, each, which

Specials: Monday – World Language, Tuesday – Gym, Wednesday – World Language, Thursday – Art, Friday – World Language

Field Trip to MSI is 12/18 and all money and permission slips are due 12/14

I wanted to update you on a few new procedures. As you have seen, I will be sending home a monthly calendar and newsletter going over our daily specials, all events, reminders, and our monthly learning focus. You will find our calendar and newsletter in the first plastic sleeve in your folder. The homework packet will be in the second sleeve to prevent them from falling out of the folder. You will find our daily sight words on the homework packet and I will be posting them on the blog as well.

I have also been sending home various extra practice pages or work that I think your student would benefit from. Please treat these extra practice pages as homework and send back the next day for me to give feedback.

I have been testing students on their sight words using a booklet. Each page has 2 weeks worth of words on it, and when students have mastered a page they unlock a sticker for their book. On Fridays I test on this week’s words and previous week’s words. I like this system because it gives students extra opportunities to master their first 100 sight words. For students who have mastered their sight words we are working on our second booklet focusing on short and long vowel fluency and phrases. I will continue to send home sight word tests and words that your student needs to review.

I put all our whole group learning objectives for the month on our newsletter. However, I believe in differentiation and teaching to your student’s specific learning continuum. I use daily assessments, exit tickets, and observations to inform my small group targeted instruction. If you ever have questions around what your student’s goals are for small group please let me know and I’ll be happy to share.

If you have any questions send me a text via dojo or email any time. I’m happy to help 🙂

Thanks!

Ms. M
