Folders- A few questions came up this week. Monday Folders can be returned any time during the week. Homework Folders are returned on Friday with the STAR reading page inside.
Homework- This week with the STAR reading you will find a Parent Pipeline. These letters let you know about a skill you and your 1st grader can be working on at home while reading. These are skills introduced in class either whole group or in small groups. Reading is a family activity so, be sure to share in the reading fun. If your 1st grader can't sit for 20 minutes, break it up into 10 minute sittings. Our first graders are new readers and still forming opinions like: am I good at reading, do I like reading? Help them feel like they are on the path to becoming great readers. We are all on the path, just in different places. Have fun reading!
Daily 5- This week we learned about Read to Someone. They did a great job of sitting elbow to elbow and knee to knee. They also did an amazing job of picking their partners and reading the whole time, helping each other check for understanding. Way to go first graders! Pictures posted on the Facebook page.
