Week of January 9, 2017
We are back to business this week!! Hopefully your child didn't groan that much to start their homework yesterday.
Reading- We are working on reading words with the silent e ending and a long vowel in the middle...this takes a lot of practice for some and that is okay. We will work on this for the rest of the year. If you are able to visit the Superkids Website please do....the games will help with the long vowel sound and the silent e...Practice the fluency sheet that came home yesterday.

This week is a quick!!! We will not have any homework this week!! Due to this no homework help on Wednesday or Thursday.
Reading-Starting Unit 7-This unit is very important!! We are starting to learn about reading words with the silent "e" ending. For example: cake, bone, bike...many kids can read these words by using the context clues in a sentence, but if they are not in a sentence they cannot read them. We will continue to work on this skill for the rest of the year.
