Early Literacy Idea
Sing the alphabet song. Be creative—sing it as a rap, skip every other letter, start the song beginning with your child’s name, sing it backwards, quietly or loudly.
Save your Box Tops!
Please remember to send in box tops with your child. Each box top is worth 10 cents for our school, so tell your relatives and friends to help with the collecting too! THANKS!
Thank you for your support and encouragement at home with your child! We are having a great time learning and I am enjoying each one of your children. Each one of them has something special to contribute to our class.
Thanks especially for helping your child with the alphabet chant chart and for reading at home.
We have been segmenting words into phonemes and blending them together to make words. For example: /f/ /i/ /s/ /h/. We will begin to “chain” words (read, spell and write words of one-syllable short vowel) in which one sound is added, substituted, or omitted. For example: at>bat>bad>bid.
Your child will be bringing Chapter 1 Go Math assessment home soon to let you see how they are understanding the concepts being taught. Please look it over and discuss it with him/her.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
