Best practices show that reading your writing to someone helps you to hear your strengths and areas that need improvement. These buddies are reading their opinion writing to each other and then offering suggestions on how to make it even better. Way to go, boys!
We had a GREAT time creating our Noun Town! The kids came up with the nouns and the pictures all by themselves. I was so proud! 🙂
We have just completed our first spelling test, and everyone made a great score! We will continue to have weekly spelling tests, and the words will come home on Mondays on a handwriting sheet. I choose sight words and words that follow spelling patterns we have learned. Please practice with your student at home.
Are you using Raz-Kids and Prodigy at home? These are two valuable and free resources for you! Statistics show that those who read at least 20m per day perform better in school. It also creates a larger vocabulary.
Prodigy is now available for our students! This is a great website to use for practice of math skills. Your student brought home his/her username and login information. I encourage you to use this site as often as you can. Please contact me with any questions.
I’m so excited that Raz-Kids is now available! This excellent reading program allows your student to practice reading AND comprehension skills at home on most devices. All of my students brought home login and password information on Friday. I’m able to check the site for reading progress and quiz results. This information will help me further individualize your child’s reading instruction. I hope you will take advantage of this awesome resource. If you have any questions, please contact me.
