Happy weekend! I just wanted to remind everyone that Homework Packets are due on Fridays and Reading Logs are due on Mondays. On Fridays, students need to find two (2) tricky words in their texts. Over the weekend, students are to read and re-tell their text to an adult. Parents and guardians, be sure to sign your name!
The kids love having someone to talk to about their reading! After the child finishes retelling, encourage them to make connections. (What did this story make you think about? What did this remind you of?) This is one of the skills we are working on throughout the year. For example, if you're reading Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! The child could say it reminded them of a time they really wanted something and they asked you for something and you kept saying no! The pigeon kept asking and begging, just like they do when they want something. Except this time, they got to say no to the pigeon!
